NOVA's Into the Abyss looks at the history of deep sea submersibles from the bathysphere of the 1930s to the current development such as Deep Flight.
AUV Laboratory at MIT Sea Grant
Take a look at MIT Sea Grant's AUV Lab's research and unmanned marine robots. See the specs for the three autonomous vehicles that MIT currently operates: Odyssey IIx, Odyssey IId, and 1 ASC.
Deep Phreatic Thermal Explorer (DEPTHX) Project
Creating the autonomy needed to enable an underwater robot to map three-dimensional spaces like flooded caverns and mines. DEPTHX will explore the depths of the Zacat?n Cenote sink hole in central Mexico
Built for the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute ROV Ventana has several robotic arms, data collection sensors, a high definition camera, and animal collection devices.
Deep Submergence Rescue Vehicle (DSRV)
Perform rescue operations on submerged, disabled submarines of the U.S. Navy or foreign navies.
Submersibles - NOAA Ocean Explorer
Find profiles of manned deep sea submersibles -- Alvin, Clelia, DeepWorker, Johnson Sea-Link, Mir I and II, Pisces IV and V -- as well as remotely operated vehicles that explore the ocean's depths.
Human Occupied Vehicle Alvin
Lean about Alvin, the U.S. Navy-owned deep submergence vehicle that can carry two scientists and a pilot as deep as 4,500 meters. See images and video from Alvin's deep sea journeys. From the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
Underwater Research Vehicles
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution introduces the three basic types of exploration vehicles that have been developed since the 1960s. Learn about their missions and how deep they can go into the ocean?s depths.
