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 capable of being connected to a carrying vessel by means of a cable, the docking station comprising a guide device which comprises a set (E) of arms (51) which are connected to the body and each comprise a distal end (ED) and a proximal end (EP), the set (E) of arms (51) being capable of being in a deployed configuration in which it defines a space flaring towards the rear so as to enable the underwater vehicle to be guided to the stop, the distal end (ED) of each arm (51) being located behind the proximal end (EP) of the arm (51) in the deployed configuration, the set (E) of arms being capable of being in a collapsed configuration in which a distal end (ED) of each arm (51) of the set (E) of arms is closer to the longitudinal axis (x) than in the deployed configuration and in which the distal end (ED) is located in front of the position occupied by the distal end (ED) in the deployed configuration, such that a length, along the axis x, of a space defined by the set (E) of arms (51) behind the stop is smaller in the collapsed configuration than in the deployed configuration.
(FR)
Dispositif d'accueil comprenant une station d'accueil apte à être reliée à un bâtiment porteur par un câble, la station d'accueil comprenant un dispositif de guidage comprenant un ensemble (E) de bras (51) reliés au corps et comprenant chacun une extrémité distale (ED) et une extrémité proximale (EP), l'ensemble (E) de bras (51) étant apte à être dans une configuration déployée dans laquelle il délimite un volume s'évasant vers l'arrière de sorte à permettre de guider le véhicule sous-marin vers la butée, l'extrémité distale (ED) de chaque bras (51) étant située derrière l'extrémité proximale (EP) du bras (51) dans la configuration déployée, l'ensemble (E) de bras étant apte à être dans une configuration repliée dans laquelle une extrémité distale (ED) de chaque bras (51) de l'ensemble (E) de bras est plus proche de l'axe longitudinal (x) que dans la configuration déployée et dans laquelle l'extrémité distale (ED) se trouve devant la position occupée par l'extrémité distale (ED) dans la configuration déployée de sorte qu'une longueur, selon l'axe x, d'un volume délimité par l'ensemble (E) de bras (51) derrière de la butée est plus faible dans la configuration repliée que dans la configuration déployée.
