1 Review of Underwater Vehicles Module 1, Section 1

2 Types of Underwater Vehicles Insert Fig. 1.3 from text book

3 Types of Underwater Vehicles Manned Vehicles Manned Vehicles Unmanned Vehicles Unmanned Vehicles Non-Vehicles Non-Vehicles

4 Manned Vehicles Submarines Submarines Atmospheric Diving Suit

5 Submarines Military Military Research Research Tourist Tourist

6 Military Submarines Classified by Propulsion System: Nuclear Nuclear Diesel-Electric Diesel-Electric Classified by Mission Attack Attack Missile Missile

7 Research Submarines Submersibles Smaller Carries 2 to 3 scientists

8 Tourist Submarines

9 Atmospheric Diving Suit Resemble space Suits Resemble space Suits One person Submersible One person Submersible Expensive to maintain Expensive to maintain

10 OceanWorks Atmospheric Diving Suit (ADS) The best current example of non- hyperbaric underwater intervention. The secret is in the pressure balanced joints. Note claws and limited visibility.

11 Unmanned Vehicles ROVs ROVs AUVs AUVs Hybrid Vehicles Hybrid Vehicles

12 ROVs Free-Swimming Free-Swimming Bottom Crawling Bottom Crawling Structurally Reliant Structurally Reliant

13 Free Swimming ROVs All are tethered Tether provides, power and data Equipped with video/TV Cameras Highly maneuverable

14 Free Swimming ROVs Heavy Duty Work Class Work Class High-Capability Electric Small (electric) ROV Observation Class

15 Heavy Work Class They primarily service the oil and gas industry They primarily service the oil and gas industry 225 Horsepower pounds of vertical lift 225 Horsepower pounds of vertical lift Multiple heavy tools Multiple heavy tools

16 Work Class Millennium Millennium Electro-Hydraulic HP Drilling support, Construction, Pipeline or Inspection

17 High-Capability Electric Compact work class system Not as powerful as hydraulic lbs Payload lbs Depth capacity to approximately 3,000

18 Small (electric) ROV (Observation Class) Lower Cost Lower Cost Usually less than 10 HP Usually less than 10 HP Used for inspection Used for inspection Observation Observation Search and Rescue Search and Rescue Scientific Exploration Scientific Exploration

19 Bottom Crawling ROVs Large Large Heavily Weighted Heavily Weighted Used for trenching and burying cable Used for trenching and burying cable 500 Horsepower Cable and Pipeline, Trencher

20 Structurally Reliant ROVs Attached to various types of underwater structures Attached to various types of underwater structures Used for cleaning or inspecting structure they are attached to Used for cleaning or inspecting structure they are attached to

21 AUVs Autonomous Underwater Vehicles Tether less Carries own power No pilot Pre-Programmed Easy Launch and Recovery

22 Gliders Require less stored energy

23 Hybrid Vehicles Nereus Nereus Can be operated as an ROV or as an AUV Can be operated as an ROV or as an AUV u/home/interactive/ nereus/ u/home/interactive/ nereus/
