In this work the effects that appear in the optical breakdown are analyzed in water and the time dependences received also for the velocities and pressures at the wave fronts. The application of acoustic waves, generated by high power laser pulses in the aqueous medium, has quite serious perspectives for sounding. It is shown in the work that under comparatively low power density of radiation, as a result of a surface layer heating, the thermoelastic sresses arise, leading to the excitation of the acoustic waves. The analysis showed that the prognostic evaluations of the values of a light deflagration area are possible for a clear aqueous medium with the pressures up to 400 kg/cm2. With the presence of microinhomogeneities, it is necessary to know their total physical and chemical properties and detailed trustworthy data by their spatial distribution. A principally new approach was developed to the problem of videoinformation transmission from the object surfaces by the fiber-optic channel. The application of a precision measuring TV-camera with a color format in the range 0.3 - 0.98 μm allows to raise the information capacity of the transmitted information. The optimization of vision module choice are considered also.
