The DART® Easy to Deploy (ETD) Buoy is flexible and cost-effective. Unlike conventional moorings, which are equipment-heavy, manpower-intensive, and difficult to deploy in heavy seas, the complete DART ETD mooring is delivered to the ship on a deployment pallet, and is easily and safely deployed, as shown in the YouTube video below.
