Many underwater operations that were once carried out by divers can now be carried out more efficiently and safely with Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs). This is the first ROV 'how-to' manual for those involved with smaller observation class ROVs used for surveying, inspection, and research purposes. As ROV technology becomes more efficient and affordable, their use is rapidly spreading to a host of industries, everything from aquaculture to underwater crime scene investigation to commercial diving.
The ROV Manual is the first user guide to provide complete training and knowledge on ROV operations for engineers, technicians or underwater recreational enthusiasts, whether working inland or offshore.
The first book to focus on observation class ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) underwater deployment in real conditions for industrial, commercial, scientific and recreational tasks
A complete user guide to ROV operation with basic information on underwater robotics and navigation equipment to obtain mission results quickly and efficiently
Ideal for anyone involved with ROVs complete with self-learning questions and answers
