Carlton Proctor | 10/27/2021

Triumph Gulf Coast, which oversees money from the 2010 Deep Horizon oil spill settlement, is funding the AMIkids remotely operated vehicle (ROV) program.

"Triumph asked us to do underwater robotics because they want to make Bay County a hub for all kinds of underwater or unmanned systems," says Ron Boyce, executive director of AMIkids Marine Institute. "This is just the beginning. Next, we're going to add unmanned UUVs, underwater unmanned vessels, which means there won't be a tether on them."
