Abstract : The patent describes a method for raising and lowering an umbilical cable into which other cables could be plugged, the cable being retrieved by releasing a connector through a signal sent on the cable. This allows the messenger cable to float to the surface, and after servicing the cable is equipped again with a releasable weight and allowed to fall to the ocean floor.
