Title (EN) SOLID MARINE SEISMIC CABLE ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE CABLE SISMIQUE MARIN PLEIN
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A solid marine seismic cable assembly (10) includes a cable (16) hydrophone housings (20), a buoyant filler (24), and an outer protective jacket (28). The cable includes a load-bearing fiber bundle (32), data-transmitting wires (36), power conductors (38), optical fibers (40), and a protective sheath (42). The data-transmitting wires (36), power conductors (38), and optical fibers (40) surround the load-bearing fiber bundle (32). The protective sheath (42) surrounds the assembly of the data-transmitting wires (36), power conductors (38), optical fibers (40), and the load-bearing fiber bundle (32). The hydrophone housings (20) affix around the cable (10) in a spaced-apart relationship. Each hydrophone housing (20) includes a hydrophone module (56), and each hydrophone module contains a hydrophone (14). The buoyant filler (24) surrounds the cable (16), and separates the hydrophone housing (20). The outer protective jacket (28) surrounds the hydrophone housing (20) and the buoyant filler (24), enclosing the cable (16) assembly.
(FR)Un ensemble (10) câble sismique marin plein comprend un câble (16), des logements (20) d'hydrophone, une charge flottante (24) ainsi qu'une enveloppe extérieure protectrice (28). Le câble comprend un faisceau (32) de fibres porteur de charge, des câbles (36) de transmission de données, des conducteurs de puissance (38), des fibres optiques (40) ainsi qu'une gaine protectrice (42). Les câbles (36) transmettant les données, les conducteurs (38) de puissance ainsi que les fibres optiques (40) entourent le faisceau (32) de fibres porteur. Les logements (20) d'hydrophone se fixent autour du câble (10) de manière espacée. Chaque logement (20) d'hydrophone comprend un module d'hydrophone (56), et chaque module d'hydrophone contient un hydrophone (14). La charge flottante (24) entoure le câble (16) et sépare le logement (20) d'hydrophone. L'enveloppe extérieure protectrice (28) entoure le logement (20) d'hydrophone et la charge flottante (24), renfermant l'ensemble câble (16).
