Instruments(s)
Instrument Weight(s)
Maximum Depth
    Conducting hydro
    Steel hydro
    Steel trawl
    .681" fiber optic
    Do you require slip rings?
NoNumber of conductors:
    Do you need non-standard wire?
NoIf so, what type?
    Do you need a traction winch?
No
Will you be bringing any equipment (winches, blocks, etc.) that lowers equipment over the side? No

If yes, please provide details: As per prior agreement, will need a mooring winch for this cruise.
We plan to operate a small Phantom ROV to recover a bottom lander
(~70 m depth) over the Baffin Shelf. We were unable to revcover this
in 2005, but conducted a thorough survey of its location. We will bring a
Trackpoint2+ USBL system. Does Knorr have a ram/stinger that could accept
the Trackpoint transducer?
Will there be special requirements for:

    Electrical power
No
    Equipment handling
Yes
    Inter/intraship communications
No
    Science stowage
No

If yes to any of the above, please identify: may need small boat for glider recovery

Will any of the following items be used on board?

    Explosive devices
No
    Portable air compressors
No
    Flammable gases
No
    Radioisotopes
No
    Isotope van
No

Will hazardous material be used aboard, or deployed by an ROV? No

What measures or plans have been made a) in the event of a spill, and b) for the removal and/or disposal of these materials at the completion of the cruise?
