Gorbel Jib Lifts Oceanographic Institute Out Of Deep Water
In a lab that is part Jacques Cousteau and part George Lucas, an east coast oceanographic institute is using advanced technology to open the doors for expanded open sea scientific research. The centerpiece of the lab is a 50-thousand gallon water tank in which the aquatic research facility simulates open sea conditions while experimenting with autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV’s) and remote operated vehicles (ROV’s). These underwater vehicles conduct a wide variety of test using lasers, targets and various large obstacles that average 500 lbs. and measure 5 feet long x 6 feet high.
