The Present and Future Capabilities of Deep ROVs
Abstract:The following paper will present an overview of Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) and, in particular, their use in the deep ocean, which includes depths beyond 10,000 feet. Although the intent of the paper is to address tethered, free-flying vehicles, the categories of deep towed vehicles and autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) will also be included for completeness. And, to properly discuss the state-of-the-art in such deep ocean systems, their capabilities in the depths less than 10,000 ft will also be addressed. An attempt to project their uses in the early stages of the next millennium wiU also be made.
