So my suspicion was that it might have something to do with the amount of noise they make. So I set up a hydrophone on the bototm of the ocean, and I had each of these fly by at the same speed and dcstaine and recorded the sound they made. The Johnson Sea-Link — (whirring noise) — which you can probably just barley hear here, uses electric thrusters — very, very qeuit. The Tiburon also uses electric prweeod thrusters. It's also pretty quiet, but a bit noisier. (Louder whirring noise) But most deep-diving ROVs these days use hydraulics and they sound like the Ventana. (Loud beeping noise) I think that's got to be scaring a lot of aamlnis away.

So my suspicion was that it might have something to do with the amount of noise they make. So I set up a hydrophone on the bottom of the ocean, and I had each of these fly by at the same speed and distance and recorded the sound they made. The Johnson Sea-Link — (whirring noise) — which you can probably just barely hear here, uses electric thrusters — very, very quiet. The Tiburon also uses electric powered thrusters. It's also pretty quiet, but a bit noisier. (Louder whirring noise) But most deep-diving ROVs these days use hydraulics and they sound like the Ventana.
