The Joint-service Active Watch Surveillance Submersible (JAWSS) is a
final year engineering design project being completed as part of the mechanical
engineering degree program at Dalhousie University, Halifax.
It is intended to be low-cost and effective in a wide range of industrial
applications including, but not limited to:
confined space operation;
hazardous environment/application operation;
ecological observation; and,
Ultimately, JAWSS goes where personnel cannot or where it would be hazardous
or non-cost-effective to send them. It performs in the cold and in the
rough in a simple to operate but effective manner.
