About the Team

The Aggie Ocean Discovery Team is a multidisciplinary group of engineering students based in College Station at Texas A&M University. We are working with industry leaders to develop next generation ocean research vessels, equipped with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and a plethora of cutting edge technology. Our long term mission is to deploy Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) around the world for research and accessible education.

Aggie Ocean Discovery Team tour Deep Down Inc. in Houston, Tx to gain insight on subsea structural design and AI systems.

Aggie Ocean Discovery Visit Oceaneering AUV division in lafayette, LA to gain insight on design and current technology

L-R: Dylan Blakeslee, Jami Cheramie

only 5% of the ocean has been explored, we are going to change that

Current Activity--Competitons

The "Shell Ocean Discovery XPRIZE" is a $7Million purse to research the ocean floors. We must create a vehicle that takes a bathymetric scan of the ocean floor and take remote chemical analysis without human intervention. Our vehicle will need to operate at 4000 meters and map up to a 500km squared area.

we know more about the surface of mars than we do our ocean floor
