The OSURC Underwater Team is engineering for the 2015-16 MATE competition. The team will build a small, tethered ROV that can be used to solve today’s problems in the Ocean: re-fitting undersea cable, repair broken oil wellheads, retrieving Cube Satellites, and surveying. The team also has plans to work on an autonomous system to run in 2016’s ROBOSUB competition. It will do many of the same things including guiding torpedo probes — such as ones planned for reconnaissance on Jupiter’s moon, Europa — and 3D Survey mapping.
