We’ve just heard from Michael Carter at NOAA’s Cordell Bank facility in California. They’ve recently used our LANC controller board embedded in their underwater ROV. My previous blog post shows the ROV they are using.
The controller is used to manage a Canon HD camera in the ROV from the surface support ship. Our Windows LANC software was used to remotely control the camera functions in the ROV. The camera is used to record underwater images (both video and stills).
On this particular cruise, NOAA was removing marine debris from the bottom near Monterey. Michael was kind enough to send along a few photos:
When I asked Michael how our controller and software worked on their cruise — his answer was “perfectly”.
That’s what we like to hear!
