ROPOS Deploying a Junction Box

Some of the special capabilities of ROPOS are that it can lift up to 4,000 lbs and directly couple to Junction Boxes for deployment to the seafloor, such as the one shown here. This was a test deployment of a Junction Box "shell", not yet fully outfitted with electronics, cables and sensors conducted in 2011.
