AUV and ROV Technology Training
AUV and ROV Technology Training Course Description
This 2-day course offers a descriptive review of Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) and Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) developed by industry and government. It traces the factors that influenced the development of underwater vehicles, and includes a description of the varied instrumentation and systems that developed concomitantly for their support and deployment. The class will focus on standing-up operational and maintenance facilities and equipment to support these vehicles.
With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
1. Operational Overview – Common to Both ROVs And AUVs.
2. Recognizing Where Most Operations Fail. Connectors • Recovery • User error • Navigation – calibration / failures • Launch • Poor maintenance • Poor practices.
3. Know Your System. Software Architecture • Sub-system Interfaces • Architecture / Failure analysis. • Health and Status data • Impact on data.
4. Lack of Communications.
5. Weight and Balance. • Stability • Data impact.
6. Data Analysis.
7. Thrust and Attitude. • Impact on instruments and data.
8. System Safety. Personnel Safety, Consistency.
9. ROV/AUV Maintenance Items In Common. • Red Flags.
10. If You Don’t Know – Ask!
