India to probe Antarctic waters with ROV developed by Chennai lab

 CHENNAI: This new year, India will begin underwater expedition of the Antarctic region using a remotely operable vehicle (ROV) developed by Chennai-based National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT). Samples collected from the underbelly of icebergs, which could be millions of years old, may hold potential surprises, including clues on origin of life. 

The ROV, which is fitted with cameras and mechanical devices, will collect samples from under icebergs. It will also capture images underwater. "While the upper part of ice which is exposed to air keeps changing, the bottom part remains relatively intact. Some of the samples from the bottom of icebergs could be millions of years old," said NIOT director M A Atmanand.

Deep Trekker travels to Messena, NY for an Intake Dam inspection

 It was one of those calls you just love to get as a manufacturer – a call from a happy customer asking you to come and check out what they do; a call that lets you go check out how your products are being used to save money and reduce risk in the real world. I got the call on a Tuesday afternoon from Brett “Ferg” Fergerson, a loyal Deep Trekker customer working for Global Contracting on a dam project in Messena, NY. Ferg had been using his Deep Trekker on this job previously, and invited me out to watch an inspection of a gate covering an intake tunnel using the DTG2 mini ROV.
