Abstract : This invention relates to a self-deploying buoy system which will moor itself in various depths of water. The system has a fixed mid-water buoy and canister. In one end of the canister is an RF telemetry buoy and upper cable pack. In the other end of the canister is a lower cable pack, sensor and anchor assembly. When deployed all the cable in both the upper and lower cable packs is deployed under the force of gravity until no cable is left in either pack. (Author)
