With a two day extension
on Inspection, the team was able to complete the task at hand.
JAWSS was put into the
tow-tank at Dalhousie and put through her paces.
One ballast to be neutrally
buoyant, JAWSS demonstrated that it was fully capable of perfoming the tasks
that we had designed it to do. We can move her up, down, left, right, forward
and backwards. We can also get a clear video picture on the surface from the
goal is to conduct further tests to verify that she meets all our specifications
for speed, depth, endurance, etc. Then we will paint her up and make her pretty.
Added new photos and
videos from the construction and inital testing phase to the Multimedia
Section. More to follow in the coming days.
the dome was fractured; however, we couldn't see they cracks until they got
big enough to cause leaking...
As well, the two servo
motors that pan and tilt the camera were somehow damaged.
Currently waiting on
replacement dome and replacement servo motors. Go Canada Post, Go!
