Title: SYSTEM FOR COMMUNICATION AND TRANSFER BETWEEN AN OBJECT ON THE SURFACE AND A SUBMERGED OBJECT, ASSEMBLY COMPRISING AN OBJECT ON THE SURFACE, A SUBMERGED OBJECT AND METHOD FOR SETTING UP COMMUNICATION AND TRANSFER BETWEEN THE OBJECT ON THE SURFACE AND THE SUBMERGED OBJECT
Abstract:
The system for communication and transfer (10) between an object on the surface (12) and a submerged object (14) in a marine or river environment (15) comprises: - an umbilical (16) including a first end (23) that is capable of being linked to the object on the surface (12) and a second end (26); - a joining member (18) comprising an electrical transformer (46) and linked to the second end (26) of the umbilical (16); - a slender connecting member (20) comprising a first end (32) that is linked to the joining member (18) and a second end (34); and - a connector (22) that is linked to the second end (34) of the slender connecting member (20), comprising means for connecting (62) to the submerged object (14), propulsion means and an automated positioning module for positioning with respect to the submerged object (14). The umbilical (16) the joining member (18), the slender connecting member (20) and the connector (22) form an electrical communication channel between the object on the surface (12) and the submerged object (14).
