Here’s a quick video of the highlights of our first ROV field test in the Columbia River. The Silvia de Grasse was a lumber schooner that sank in Astoria in 1849.

 

We didn’t find the hull, but our primary goal was to test the ROV outside the pool, and that was a big success. Great job MAS ROV team!

MAS was awarded a 2016 grant from the Clatsop County Cultural Coalition to fund the purchase of an OpenROV. We wish to thank the Clatsop County Cultural Coalition, which is funded by the Oregon Cultural Trust http://www.clatsopculturalcoalition.orgcultural_trust_1280x550
