Systems as well as Pressure Tubes, Camera Housings, Releasers, Drives,

An important focus of K.U.M. activity is the continuously progressing development of Ocean-Bottom-Seismometer-Systems for the detection of subsea seismic movements (seaquakes). The youngest OBS-generation is equipped with the titanium releaser KUMQuat (see right), that embodies lightweightness, smallness, handyness and multi-functionality.
