Underwater Remote Operational Vehicle (ROV)

I ordered the BlueROV from BlueRobotics.com during their KickStarter program.

It arrive the day after Christmas!!

This will be an on-going project during the Winter and Fall periods.  I plan to have this in the water by Summer!

Stern view. After lifting Thruster. Note the ports on the back. This is where the Thruster cables will penetrate the pressure chamber, using special hull penetrators to prevent water compromise.

Here is a great video of the BlueROV’s maneuverability and smooth control!
