ROV support critical in historic offshore project in North Carolina

It takes a lot of planning, effort, and help from Mother Nature to complete a successful offshore research mission. The latter is probably the most important for the “SeaViculite” project by the Zulu Discovery Team. We are working on something that may well help re-write early North American migration patterns of its first peoples.

An ROV is essential for:

1) Site confirmation and anchor security
2) Visibility and condition check
3) Diver support and response

As soon as the hook is dropped, the microROV is right behind it! We want to be absolutely certain that we are working the right spot and that the anchor has a secure hold. Next we want to be sure that the visibility and conditions are suitable to accomplish the tasks at hand. Finally, diver support and response is an absolute necessity for Zulu Marine.

This presentation will show how we have saved tens of thousands of dollars due to the overall efficiency of our research thanks to one of our best friends, Zulu “ROVer”

Rusty Batey is the co-founder and co-owner of Zulu Marine and Zulu Discovery. In 1995 he started a technology company in Savannah Georgia and has recently turned his attention and passion for technology to the Sea.

Together with his father Jim Batey, who has vast experience in underwater exploration, the duo plan to embark on what is sure to be the pinnacle of their careers. Recent discoveries have opened the door for Zulu Discovery to quickly assert itself into the undersea arena and take part in what is truly an enlightenment era for sub- sea exploration.
