Mission Tank questions

Post by blakewhittington » Mon Jun 09, 2014 5:02 pm

We had a few questions about the poolside...

1. Will there be a platform of some type around the tank? (For controls setup, tether management, ROV deployment, etc.)

2. Will there be any sort of shade structure put over the tank to minimize glare on monitors and cameras, etc.?

3. How many stations will be set up around the tank at once?

Thanks, Blake

There is a platform around the tank. Like in previous years, teams will be provided with a table, 2-3 chairs, etc. The platform will be 8-10 feet wide.

There will be a tent over the mission station. However, depending on the time of day (angle of the sun), there may be glare on video displays. Teams should be prepared to provide their own covers/shade to their video display (or the MATE provided video display).

Seven station will be going at once. 4 EXPLORER and 3 RANGER (subject to change).

Good luck.
