Mussel Count, Air Compressor, Tasks during Takedow

Post by aaprea » Sun Jun 08, 2014 3:03 pm

When counting the number of mussels in our grid, are we able to take a screen shot to verify with the judge our count of the number of mussels is correct?

The mission guide is unclear as to wether MATE will be providing an air compressor on deck. Will an air compressor be on deck for our use?

May we remove the Danforth anchor from our ROV during mission take down time and still receive points for its recovery? The anchor will be removed from the seafloor during mission time.

Also, how many mission stations will be in the pool in Alpena?

Thank you,

Yes you may take a screen shot to verify the number of mussels.

No, MATE will not be supplying a compressor to teams. If you need a compressor, you must provide your own.

See page 25 and 26 of the competition manual for removing the anchor from the pool. Essentially it must be removed from the pool and set on the pool deck unless that is the final mission task and a team is getting a time bonus.

There will be 7 mission stations in Alpena. 4 EXPLORER and 3 RANGER (subject to change).

Good luck.
