The 2009 Marine Advanced Technology Education (MATE) remotely operated vehicle (ROV) competition focuses on a submarine rescue training exercise. There are four tasks outlined for the Ranger class, each providing its own challenge. Our ROV was designed to carry out these tasks with precision and agility.

The team spent numerous hours planning, building, and field testing our ROV. We had to be prepared to combat technical problems and overcome the challenge of differing opinions. Because of the diversity of the tasks, Suijin had to be very well designed. This required the creation of a rigid frame, useful end effectors, and a versatile propulsion system; a form of buoyancy, effective sensors, and proper wiring were also necessary. There were many ideas to consider and obstacles to overcome, but finally, we completed our masterpiece.

Heritage Robotics is very pleased to present the following technical report, which communicates the details of Suijin, an ROV created by students from Heritage Collegiate, Lethbridge, Newfoundland, Canada. This document includes detailed descriptions and diagrams of Suijin’s components, possible future improvements, trouble shooting techniques, the lessons we learned, the challenges we faced, information on the Submersible LR5, reflections, a thorough budget, and acknowledgments of all those who helped along the way.
