MicroSeeker Tank Test - June 23, 2001
I went down again to URI (University of Rhode Island) to see the guys from the URI AUV
team on the weekend of June 23rd...
This time the o-rings were sealed up tight, and we actually managed to do a bunch of
tethered runs in their acoustic tank.
The sub doesn't dive, mainly because I don't have the main "wing" fins made
yet, so there is no pivot point when the thrusters tilt to force the sub down. We launch
the sub by holding it about a foot under the surface, and it stays under with no problems.
