Many underwater operations that were once carried out by divers can now be carried out more efficiently and safely with Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs). This is the first ROV 'how-to' manual for those involved with smaller observation class ROVs used for surveying, inspection, and research purposes. As ROV technology becomes more efficient and affordable, their use is rapidly spreading to a host of industries, everything from aquaculture to underwater crime scene investigation to commercial diving. The ROV Manual is the first user guide to provide complete training and knowledge on ROV operations for engineers, technicians or underwater recreational enthusiasts, whether working inland or offshore.

"The ROV Manual is great! The information in The ROV Manual will allow operators to get the most out of an ROV while returning the vehicle safely to the dock. The ROV Manual is the next best thing to having an ROV expert on site. I plan to carry it along on my next undersea adventure. Good job!" - Emory Kristof - Famed National Geographic Underwater Explorer and PhotogapherAbout the Author:
