Our Skilled Trades personnel work with researchers to find innovative ways to measure and record information about the oceans. In addition to building dozens of moorings and buoys, the shops have worked on the remotely operated vehicles Jason and Jason II, as well the British deep-sea research vehicle Isis. Currently, the shops are involved with the development of vehicles replacing the robot ABE (for Autonomous Benthic Explorer) and the submersible Alvin.

The current shop rate is $61 per hour.
