One Moveable Platform (Sailboat)
Solar Cell Energy Source
440 amp/hr DC Battery Bank
The "Behoovus Project" as I envision it at this time is to provide the use of the
sun's renewable energy to allow extended dives for the ROV at multiple sites for
survey purposes. Emmy and I intend to send DC current down the tether, which
has been generated by an onboard solar system and stored in Sailing Vessel
"Behoovus" 440 amp/hr battery bank. The Solar / Battery side is operational.
The long term objective is to have multiple solar driven survey sites for acquiring
specific underwater data via the use of "OpenROV".
This is our preliminary goal.
