Getting Ready to Cut the Umbilical

WHOI researchers secure harness lines and observe a test of the new Sentry autonomous underwater survey vehicle in April 2008, a day before heading out into the North Atlantic for deep-sea trials. Sentry is in the final stages of testing and refinement, and it is expected to be added to the National Deep Submergence Facility later this year.
