Jason II

Armed and Ready

On its first mission in 2002, the newest Jason vehicle—and its sophisticated manipulator arm, shown here—operated for nearly 300 hours without a failure. The ROV's two manipulators can maneuver payloads of up to 150 pounds. The UK’s Southampton Oceanography Centre enlisted WHOI to build a Jason copy, now called Isis.  (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
