The GNOM GTC-01 is a towed camera system with live video, it can be equipped with side scan sonar, altimeter, etc. A versatile boat deployed underwater camera system. It has a small size, 4mm thin umbilical cable and very high manoeuvring, its portability, rugged construction, versatility, and ease of operation make this a true "workhorse" for capturing underwater video.

The towed camera system GTC-01 is ideal for small boat and platform operations, where a single operator or quick launch is required. Launching simply involves heaving the submersible by hand into the water. They can be deployed in sea states that would be too dangerous for larger machines.

More universities and environmental groups are using underwater video systems to assist in their research and monitoring operations. These cameras can be very useful tools in studying benthic habitats and marine organisms, and to monitor the impact of pollution on the environment.
