Alvin control systems

Inside Alvin

In late October, WHOI engineer and Alvin pilot Sean Kelley prepared wiring that will eventually be moved inside the submersible's personnel sphere. His work was in advance of a full test of the submersible's internal power systems, including video, maneuvering, emergency, and sampling, as well as external systems, from lights and cameras to sonar. Kelley and his colleagues in the Alvin group are immersed in a multi-year overhaul of the submersible that will boast upgrades that include larger viewports, improved comfort for researchers and pilots, better command and control systems, and new lighting.
