What we’re responsible for:

  • Designing, assembling, and testing the ROV’s electrical systems
  • Hands-on power and technical projects like power distribution and motor controllers
  • Emergency plans in case of technical failures

What we use:

  • KiCAD software for designing circuit boards
  • Project groups to better distribute the workload

Members of our division will gain relevant experience in designing circuits, soldering, and working with power and motion control.

Contact ELECTRICAL_LEAD at ELECTRICAL_EMAIL with any questions about the division.
