Sea Snakes and Subs

The daily drama of money and work from the BBC.

In today's Business Daily, Zoe Kleinman visits the Ocean Business exhibition. She tries out the latest marine technology including shoals of subs, robot sea snakes and remote controlled boats. Dan Hook from ASV Global invites Zoe to remotely pilot one of its rather expensive survey vehicles. Terry Sloane from Planet Ocean gives the low down on robotic microsubs, whilst Richard Mills from Kongsberg Maritime demonstrates the results of 10 years of research into snake robots which will be used for underwater inspection and maintenance. All this cutting edge equipment needs a power source and Paul Edwards from Steatite rounds off the programme by talking about the latest in battery technology.
