Abstract : The patent describes an undersea electrical connector which can quickly effect a disconnect between two undersea cables by the application of a large tensional force across the connector which causes the connector to disengage. The connector is pressurized to prevent the collapse of the flexible connector housing which permits the rapid disconnect without further mechanical detents or escape mechanisms.
