AGGIE OCEAN DISCOVERY TEAM
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 the next generation ocean research vessel, equipped with Artificial Intelligence and a slew of cutting edge technology.
Aggie Ocean Discovery Team tour Deep Down Inc. in Houston, Tx to gain insight on subsea structural design and AI systems.
only 5% of the ocean has been explored, we are going to change that
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.
