The SeaSearcher lab is outfitted to build and maintain the SeaSearchers and supporting components. Pardon the covers. They are a little modest. Our lab has a dedicated workstation for each SeaSearcher. Yes, there are two SeaSearchers.
The SeaSearcher™ has been tested in a variety of environments including the lab, a test pool, lake, and the open ocean at numerous depths (both water and sub-bottom). The open ocean is where those very cool looking Seafarer Exploration coins come into play.
The SeaSearcher™ Command Trailer serves as an all-in-one transport, repair, and operations center for the SeaSearcher when on-site. There is secure storage for the SeaSearcher for transport to any of the Seafarer Exploration sites. There is also a complement of tools and spare parts so SeaSearcher can be repaired if needed. Finally, there is a fully integrated dual monitor command station where the SeaSearcher is operated.
Our SeaSearcher day starts with loading the SeaSearcher on the Good Fortune. Here, it is being loaded from the SeaSearcher command trailer.
Some have asked about the SeaSearcher and its team. Well, here’s a glimpse of the SeaSearcher team headed out for the day. This team of highly skilled technologists, divers, and engineers are responsible for the SeaSearcher development and operations. Upon command, SeaSearcher submerges and flies over the ocean floor scanning and relaying its imagery through the wireless link on the surface to the command center. The SeaSearcher is identifying anomalies below the seafloor which can’t be identified using industry-standard technology. Here are a few views as the SeaSearcher descends into the waters off of Melbourne Beach and heads out to perform a scan. Enjoy!
