Proteus 1517

Proteus 1517

This weekend Richard and I made a few final touches on our OpenROV, Proteus. The camera and all the controls are functioning fine, and all the seals are good. Though we have some minor details to follow up on with the depth sensor, I’d say the build is complete!

Check out our expedition at OpenExplorer where you can see a video of us running a test on the ROV’s controls.

A fellow explorer Asha has taken on a big project in a place where science is under funded. She’s on a mission to reduce blue whale death by ship-strike in the Indian Ocean and she needs our help. Any small contribution you can make by through a donation or helping to spread the word would be greatly appreciated!

Lets show them that we can make a difference through crowd funding important work like Asha’s! Please take the time read about her expedition & share this post on you blog or FB page.

Thanks!

Saving blue whales from ship-strike in the Indian Ocean!

I hope you’ll all join us as we share details about what we do and how it all started. I’ll be speaking about the recent projects and expeditions we’ve been working on, including our current work on the H.F. Payton and OpenROV!
