OBEi1 Deep Marine


The OBEi1 Deep Marine is a state-of-the-art ocean-bottom electrical imager. A remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV) carries the OBEi1 and is pulled behind a boat with a cable system at roughly one kilometer in depth. The cable—which typically spans approximately 1 kilometer behind the ROV—uses a Kevlar-strength member, water block inner seal, and ruggedized marine jacket. The OBEi1 sensor has 56 AGI graphite electrodes (US patent 6,674,286) available in custom spacings.
