Data from submarine vehicles and videos

The raw data measured by submarine vehicles, whether remotely-operated, manned, autonomous or towed (navigation, bathymetric, photos and videos) are provided to SISMER by Genavir Toulon on a NAS (Network Attached Storage) drive which can contain up to 10 terabytes of data. In general, a cruise represents 5 terabytes of data.

Only the data from SCAMPI are provided by Genavir Brest.

Données vidéos


All videos are archived in their original format on the HSM system. Then they are transcoded on the Caparmor tool to obtain 3 standard formats with 3 different resolutions (HD – High Definition, MD – Medium Definition and LD – Low Definition). These 3 formats are again backed up on the HSM system and copied onto the Intranet and Internet drives to be put online, depending on how they are used and the permissions assigned to them.

These video data are organised by cruise/vehicle/dive/camera.

Navigation, photos, images and bathymetry

All these sensor data are archived long-term via the Object Archive (OANET) interface. They are organised by cruise and by dive without reorganisation.
