[Ranger]fiber optic cable with unused conductors

If the fiber optic cable also contains some copper conductors, but they are not connected electrically between the ROV and microROV can we still get the fiber optic points? This assumes we can prove to the judges that the copper conductors are not connected.

thanks

Re: Definition of "micro ROV attached to Primary ROV"

I'm confused Matt: Your last response makes it sound like the fiber optic points are only an Explorer thing. But the ranger uROV briefing says that Ranger also gets points for a fiber connection. Is that a mistake?

RANGER: ROV to uROV tether management

In this thread: http://forums.marinetech2.org/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=1038 it was stated that the surface team cannot manipulate the uROV by pulling on its tether (assuming the micro ROV has a separate tether to the surface). However, in the case where the uROV tether is being controlled by the main RO...

Ranger bonus point question

If the three tasks are finished before the 15 minutes are up, but one or both of the distance measurements are not within the 10 cm accuracy target, are the time bonus points still awarded?

Re: Ranger Pressure Release for OBS Release Mechanism

I'm confused because that sounds a lot more complicated than what the manual gives as acceptable pressure release systems for onboard batteries. From the manual: Examples of acceptable methods for housing batteries include: • A PVC pipe with wires penetrating one end and the opposite end plugged wit...

Ranger - OBS connector holder

Hi. Can you provide more detail on the OBS connector holder in the OBS? For example could it just be a basket?

Re: Rule ELEC-NRD-004

Would a waterproof container using a cork as the pressure release be acceptable?

ranger - lift bag questions

Questions on the lift bag: 1) Does it have to actually be a bag or could it be something rigid, like PVC? 2) When the debris is lifted with the lift bag and the rov moves it and the bag away from the wreckage, can the ROV then release the debris from the bag to drop it to the pool bottom, or does th...

ranger - air line for lift bags

As I understand it, the air line we use for the lift bag will be attached to a compressed air system at the international competition but not at the regionals. So two questions: 1) Are we make it to the international competition, are we required to use the compressed air provided, or can we use the ...
