Abstract:This document describes the use of the acoustic releasers and the respective command unit that will be used in the UAN project. It contains instructions on how to use both equipments and also instructions on how to maintain and deploy them. The releasers can be used to easily recover equipment which may be deployed at depths. The releaser model described in this document has also a transponder function which allows us for measuring the depth at which the releaser is deployed. Some procedures to test and use the releasers with safety are also referred. This manual is for both advanced and non-advanced users, containing all the necessary information to operate the described equipment.
