WHOI Research Engineer Bob Petitt designed and built the complex communication and control system that routes signals into and out of individual instruments plugged into H2O. Above, Petitt tests the system with a call from R/V Thompson through the submarine cable to WHOI Senior Engineer Assistant John Bailey at the cable's terminus, a shorebased station in Makaha, Hawaii.
