Abstract : This technical document explains the results of an investigation into the commercial air transportation of the Submersible Cable-Actuated Teleoperator (SCAT). The study concludes that four LD-11 containers will be needed to transport the vehicle and its necessary components to operation sites. A packaging plan is presented which uses these containers for air transportation on DC-10, L1011, and 747 aircraft. The document also presents deployment plans for both commercial air and overland transportation of the system. (Author)
