The objective of this project was to continue the multidisciplinary design of a durable sea crawler system that would be able to undertake seafloor missions where divers are not able to explore due to physical limitations. The remotely operated vehicle (ROV) allows for the use of variable attachments for the collection and retrieval of both large and small artifacts from the seafloor. The ROV features a buoyancy control system which allows vertical movement through the water column.
