AbstractThe Naval Ocean Systems Center (NOSC) has developed the Advanced Tethered Vehicle (ATV) that can perform a variety of tasks at ocean depths to 20,000 feet. The ATV employs a bidirectional, fiber optic telemetry system. The design of the telemetry was validated by at-sea testing and its reliability contributed to the ATV’s successful deep ocean operations. The telemetry system transmits commands to the vehicle, and two videos and sensor data to the surface over a single optical fiber. Design requirements, descriptions, and implementation of a high speed 200 Megabits-per-second (Mbps) uplink and a 5 Mbps downlink Time Division Multiplexed telemetry system are discussed in this paper.
