Small Inflatable Boat Outfitted with Gear for Exploring Old Shipwreck

This is the continuation of a project involving exploring an intentionally shipwrecked vessel at the bottom of Lake Tahoe. Here’s the recent update:

In just over a week (June 6th – 9th), a bunch of people from OpenROV are going to attempt to dive a set of specially modified deep-capable ROVs to a 50m-long shipwreck at a depth of 150m below lake Tahoe. We’ll be using a deployment architecture that we’ve been perfecting over the years35 that involves a very small boat keeping station over the dive site while the rest of the people on the expedition run the mission from a remote location via long range broadband radio. Since the mission control site will have an internet connection, we’ll be able to live stream the entire dive over the internet.

We’ve outfitted a small inflatable boat with long range communication equipment, a USBL acoustic positioning system, and a low cost dynamic positioning system which we tested at Lake Tahoe this week.
