Continue the advancement of the multidisciplinary design of a durable sea crawler system that is able to undertake sea floor missions where divers are not capable of exploring. The remotely operated vehicle (ROV) allows for the use of variable attachments to aid in a wide variety of underwater practical applications. The ROV also features a buoyancy control system which allows vertical movement through the water column. A tank-like track system allows for easy translation along the sea floor.
