Title
(EN) DOCKING DEVICE FOR AN UNDERWATER VEHICLE
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'ACCUEIL POUR UN VEHICULE SOUS-MARIN
Abstract
(EN)
Docking device comprising a docking station (5) capable of being pulled by a carrying vessel at a pull point (T), the docking station (5) comprising a body (7) comprising a beam (8) extending parallel to a longitudinal axis (x) of the body (7) and a stop making it possible to block a movement of an underwater vehicle (2) relative to the body (7) along the longitudinal axis (x), the dorsal beam (8) extending longitudinally above the underwater vehicle (2) to abut the stop, a centre of gravity of the docking station and a centre of buoyancy of the docking station being positioned, and the pull point (T) being capable of assuming a docking position, such that the docking station (5) has a predetermined negative longitudinal docking trim when it is completely submerged and pulled by the carrying vessel in the direction of the longitudinal axis at a predetermined speed.
(FR)
Dispositif d'accueil comprenant une station d'accueil (5) apte à être tirée par un bâtiment porteur en un point de tire (T), la station d'accueil (5) comprenant un corps (7) comprenant une poutre (8) s'étendant parallèlement à un axe longitudinal (x) du corps (7) et une butée permettant de bloquer un mouvement d'un véhicule sous-marin (2) par rapport au corps (7) selon l'axe longitudinal (x), la poutre dorsale (8) s'étendant longitudinalement au-dessus du véhicule sous-marin (2) en butée contre la butée, un centre de gravité de la station d'accueil et un centre de carène de la station d'accueil étant positionnés et le point de tire (T) étant apte à occuper une position d'accueil telle que la station d'accueil (5) présente une assiette longitudinale d'accueil négative prédéterminée lorsqu'elle est totalement immergée et tractée par le bâtiment porteur dans le sens de l'axe longitudinal à une vitesse prédéterminée.
