Scoping a Tiburon refit

Project Manager: Dale Graves
Lead Scientist: Jim Barry
Lead Engineers: Paul McGill, Doug Au

This proposal is a continuation from last year. The result of all evaluations and studies made in 2004 was to recommend purchase of a new, made-to-order ROV in 2007-2008. The objectives for 2005 are to develop high-level engineering specifications. 

A new tool sled controller will be developed to allow independent operation from the current Tiburon control system and for future integration into the new vehicle. This also will allow us to help plan integration of other existing vehicle subsystems into the new vehicle control system.
