Remotely Piloted Systems
This is a media curation page for the PIRatE Lab's AARR Program.  We are developing practical, low cost programs to monitor resources in our coastal zone (the land near the ocean and the ocean near the land) with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs aka "drones") overhead and subtidal Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) .  Enjoy!!

Fathom One lets adventurers explore underwater without getting wet

Fathom One lets adventurers explore underwater without getting wet | Remotely Piloted Systems | Scoop.it
The Fathom One is designed to make amateur photography ​beneath the waves a bit more accessible, with a modular design and an HD camera for adventurers taking the plunge into underwater exploration.
PIRatE Labs insight:
Could be cool.  But the small size = small thrusters = problem controlling in open ocean and the hundreds of meters depth range is actually limited by their 30m tether.
