ROMOR Ocean Solutions has created the source, supply and solutions to meet customers, oceanographic and geophysical application requirements.  With 30 years of experience in the marine and ocean technology industry, ROMOR has become a leading provider of world renowned instrumentation in the oceanographic, defense and offshore oil & gas sectors.  Working closely with industry, academia and governments, ROMOR has been able to source, supply and solve the customer’s requirement to retrieve and collect data in the field. Whether it is providing instrumentation, support, or collaboration to its customers, ROMOR is focused on discovering and introducing new opportunities to the world.  The ROMOR C-ROM (Compact Recoverable Ocean Mooring) is an oceanographic subsurface mooring solution that offers a reliable and compact design to mooring and recovering oceanographic instrumentation.   The C-ROM consists of a subsurface flotation collar mounting assembly for instrumentation that provides approximately 80lbs positive buoyancy starting at depths of 750m, progressing to full ocean depth. The C-ROM floatation collar encloses a customer specified acoustic release assembly as well as the client specified instrument(s) that can be accommodated within the dimensions of the design.  The arrangement is a two-piece flotation collar that fastens directly to a strong back assembly to which the acoustic release is attached.  Each half of the collar is a polyethylene shell filled with a syntactic foam.  As an option, the C-ROM Roto Drum can be included with the C-ROM to enable recovery of the mooring anchor once the mooring has been released and surfaced.  Additional options, such as an acoustic modem for remote data collection, can also be included into this design.
