Abstract : A deepwater propellant embedded anchor system having emergency release mechanism for separating an anchor fluke assembly from the gun assembly. In an emergency, a sear pin is rotated by a lever and release line to disengage the fluke assembly, thus allowing the fluke assembly and explosive cartridge to drop away and allow water to flood the gun barrel and soak the primer for disarming the anchor system.
