NOAA Photo Library Image - expl1899

The tether management system sits on top of this ROV during deployment and recovery of ROV. It is suspended by the support vessel above the ocean floor during dives. It manages the tether line for the ROV as it moves down to the ocean floor, ensuring that it doesn't drag along the bottom, and is also used fo r sample storage as can be seen by the various baskets hanging from the frame.
