August 2022: A New Heading

This summer marked a huge turning point for the Underwater Robotics Team. Through our discussions with the USS Missouri, we were able to get in contact with her sister, the USS Iowa, and bring our ROV on board the battleship! Thanks to them both, we have started a conversation with the Historic Naval Ships Association (HNSA), and we are currently working on overhauling our SS&T Missouri for AC power to do hull inspections for museum ships like the Read more…

June 2022: SS&T Missouri Commissioning

Today marks a milestone in the Missouri Underwater Robotics Team’s history. We are proud to announce the official commissioning of the SS&T Missouri, ROV-3, into the team. All of our hard work and countless hours of effort have led us to this moment. If you would like to watch the recording of the ceremony, you can view it on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/xP2Q24NdDfU A huge thank-you to the Battleship Missouri Memorial, for their inspiration and the Read more…

July 2022: Competition and the USS Iowa

The Missouri S&T Underwater Robotics Team has finished competing in our first ever MATE ROV competition from June 21-26! We placed 14th out of 20 teams in our class, not a bad run for the first time out! While we were there, we also took the chance to visit the USS Missouri’s sister ship, the USS Iowa. They were kind enough to let us display our “Mini Mo” on board and give us a tour of the Read more…

June 2022: The Last Weeks

We are making our final preparations for competition during this next week! Seven of us will set out on June 21st for competition in Long Beach, CA. We will be celebrating all of the progress our team has made this semester on Friday, June 17, with our commissioning ceremony for our ROV, the SS&T Missouri! The event will be livestreamed on our Facebook and YouTube channels, and anyone is free to join us for the Read more…

May 2022: Competition on the Horizon

We made it! SS&T Missouri, our current ROV, has been accepted into the MATE Explorer 2022 competition! The journey has been documented on our social media pages, both the highs and the lows. Thank you for all the support from our families, friends, sponsors, and those who came before us for making this year possible! The electrical division has finalized our control systems with the help of the computing division, and our mechanical division has Read more…

April 2022: Final Stretch

As we close in on competition, things are starting to pick up! Our mechanical division put the finishing touches on the frame by adding penetrators to keep the wires waterproof when entering the enclosure, as well as worked on our manipulators to allow us to interact with the props. The computing division ran their first successful tests of ArduSub and were able to control a thruster with PWM, but there’s still a lot to do, Read more…

December 2021 Computing: Overhaul

The past month was a big one for the Computing Division. Not only was the new and improved website completed, but we also finished early tests and baseline code for object recognition! This will help us make enormous progress toward establishing stable autonomous programs come next semester. We have also begun more research into handling the serial connections within the ROV in the hopes of debugging our driving code, with our goal being to have Read more…

December 2021 Electrical: Board Building

The Electrical Division has been busy this semester working on our new boards! They have passed the design phase and are moving on to being tested and fixed (if necessary). Just wait until you see the size of these PCBs! They’re quite a bit bigger this semester to make routing easier to handle. This ROV will also be using a Raspberry Pi to handle the camera and video feed, so we took that functionality off Read more…

December 2021 Mechanical: Frame Construction

This semester, the Mechanical Division was hard at work. The frame of the new ROV has been cut and is mostly assembled, as can be seen in the general update. The current project is testing the gaskets and collars that are sealing the enclosure lid and the electrical connections between the enclosure and the tether. Wouldn’t want to get the ROV in the water only to have the boards get wet, would we? Once those Read more…

December 2021: Assembly Begins

The Underwater Robotics Team has made great strides this semester. The frame for the new ROV is in the process of being assembled and tested, thanks to the Mechanical Division. The Electrical division is delving into the details of designing the new boards, and the Computing Division has been making steady progress on the drive code and object recognition. Furthermore, our team is proud to announce our newest sponsorship by Odyssey Scuba out of Waynesville, Read more…
