Dual Body ROV System Teaching Animation

Teaching Animation or Graphic

ROVs Hercules and Argus work together to explore the ocean floor. Hercules is equipped with high-definition cameras and lights to provide eyes on the seafloor and is connected to Argus by a tether. This tether sends vital information and video streams through a cable to the control van located aboard E/V Nautilus.

The two-body ROV system and dynamic positioning system ensures that vehicles in the water are stable and secure during dive operations.
