REDLINE | an integrated Life System

Project Description

Our integrated Life System, REDLINE (Range Extension for Depth and LINear Exploration), is a purpose built platform which brings together a unique interface of human intervention tools with ROV-like telemetry – this includse multiple cameras, lights, communication, and sensor telemetry over the diver’s tether. REDLINE has been designed to incorporate commonly used and readily available components and sub-assemblies to ensure rapid re-configurations and field repairs as needed. The platform’s modularity allows for custom re-configurations to meet mission requirements. The system has evolved in response to our demonstrated technical intervention needs in both mesophotic science and specialized industrial diving, and continues to evolve as a research and development platform with our partners. A number of demonstrations are being planned and will be underway in coming years.
