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 Competition

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
