Many underwater operations that were once carried out by divers can now be carried out more efficiently and with less risk with Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs). This is the first ROV 'how-to' manual for those involved with smaller observation class ROVs used for surveying, inspection, observation and research purposes. As ROV technology becomes increasingly efficient and affordable, their use is rapidly spreading throughout a myriad of industries, everything from aquaculture to port and harbour security to underwater crime scene investigation, marine salvage, deep sea archaeology and commercial diving even deep sea rescue missions are handled by ROVs. Any industry involved with underwater investigation and surveying will inevitably rely on these machines. The ROV Manual is the first user guide to provide complete training and knowledge on ROV operations for engineers, technicians or underwater recreational enthusiasts, whether working inland or offshore.

Reviews
The ROV Manual is great! The information in The ROV Manual will allow operators to get the most out of an ROV while returning the vehicle safely to the dock. The ROV Manual is the next best thing to having an ROV expert on site. I plan to carry it along on my next undersea adventure. Good job!
