C4R ApS have delivered several customised heavy duty deployment systems for RSS Sir David Attenborough.  The customer needed to find a way to do a retractable mount for the Kongsberg MS70 and ME70 Scientific multi beam sonar. In the past these transducers have been mounted in drop keels only. For the first time an alternative to a drop keel has been developed by C4R ApS in corporation with Camel Laird Shipbuilders and Force Institute in Denmark. C4R ApS have been in charge of the development of the deployment mechanisms, tests, cofferdam design, blister design, electronic control boxes and bridge controls. C4R ApS delivered a turn key solution for the costumer from design and production to finished product installed on the vessel. The hardware was delivered summer 2017.

During the development process the design has been tested at Force Institutes test facility in Denmark. The test were performed with model scale blisters to verify the design.
