AbstractA faired cage, forming part of a sensor array has conical shaped pieces at pposite ends and a plurality of grooved parallel bars secured therebetween. A chamber formed within the parallel bars is suitable for containing a sensor. The cage is utilized in conjunction with a parallel element synthetic strength member electromechanical cable. The conical shaped pieces comprise flexible boots having cavities for containing electrical wires and strength members. This configuration provided on each end of the cage enable the cable to bend smoothly over the cage.
