ROV's will be used to recover flight recorders

benny writes:  Robot dives for crash recorders
A deep-sea robot has begun searching for the flight recorders of a plane that crashed off Egypt's coast.

The submarine, Scorpio 2000, which can reach depths of 1,100 metres (3,600 feet), was tested in the Red Sea for a few hours on Tuesday before the real search began.

The "black box" recorders are believed to lie about 800 metres (2,600ft) down.

Hybrid ROV to reach deep ocean floors.

For the first time since 1960, US scientists will be able to explore the deepest parts of the world's oceans, up to seven miles below the surface, with a novel underwater vehicle capable of performing multiple tasks in extreme conditions. Researchers at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) are developing a battery-powered underwater robot to enable scientists to explore the ocean's most remote regions up to 11,000 meters (36,000-feet) deep.

Oceaneering introduced its high specification, 225hp Hydra® Millennium Plus ROV system aboard the company's refitted multi-purpose survey and ROV support vessel, Ocean Service during the 2003 summer work season in the Gulf of Mexico. Two additional Millennium Plus ROVs will be delivered in November for work in the North Sea.
The increased power and optimized propulsion of the Millennium Plus system enables a 1-ton lift capacity and the ability to work in high currents. New plug and play features provide quick and easy interfacing with state-of-the-art intelligent tooling and survey devices. The compact footprint design of Oceaneering's original work class Millennium ROVs remains the same in the new Plus system.
