Abstract : A submerged cable is fitted with one or more tethered transducers that are rotatably supported on the cable between clamped collars spaced apart to receive a standoff device. The device has pivotably connected flat portions which define semicircular lower parts to so receive the cable. Upper triangular panel portions can be spread apart to receive the cable, and clamped together by a clevis that is connected to a riser or tether for the transducer.
