Acoustically Navigated Geological Underwater Survey

The Acoustically Navigated Geological Underwater Survey (ANGUS) is a deep-towed still camera sled operated by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute. It is capable of remaining in the deep ocean for 12 to 14 hours at a time, and can take up to 16,000 photographs in one lowering. It is capable of mounting three 35 mm color cameras with 400 feet of film and is capable of working in depths up to 20,000 feet.Porteaus J. (1986). VETERAN ANGUS "Oceans".
