Abstract
When strands are discovered to be defective at the tow point of a VDS cable the system is inoperable due to the possibility of losing the body. Without a shipboard retermination procedure the subsequent inoperability of the towed sonar severely curtails the antisubmarine operational role. As the need for cable repair recently has become more important, a procedure has been developed and equipment has been designed to perform retermination. The report outlines the equipment and describes the first successful shipboard retermination, which took place on board HMCS KOOTENAY on May 10, 1978.
