Vehicle
The Orcus ROV is an underwater remotely operated vehicle created by students at the University of Washington. It was created for entry in the 2013 international ROV competition hosted by the Marine Advanced Technology Education (MATE) Center, as well as for use in the field by researchers affiliated with the university. Orcus is an adaptable, intuitive vehicle. The systems and subsystems onboard the ROV were designed to perform a specific set of tasks published by the MATE Center, as well as to be adaptable for a variety of missions in the Pacific ocean. The machine acts as a versatile platform, with a frame constructed of polymer. The frame is used to mount all major components, and is adaptable for the addition of new equipment. Waterproof pressure vessels house electronic controls and camera systems. Six thrusters housed in a delrin body provide propulsion for the ROV, and are arranged in a vectored thrust pattern. Wet mateable connectors manufactured by Seacon provide an interface with each pressure housing, and are connected to a tether of variable length. Surface controls are housed in a large Pelican case. Two rotating cameras provide a comprehensive field of vision, and tasks are accomplished through the use of an electronically-powered arm and manipulator tool. All electronics, software, and GUI systems are custom-designed by the team utilizing an Arduino microcontroller.

Introduction
This document provides the necessary information for the handling of the Orcus ROV in any realistic situation. The development and application of an operations protocol ensures safety for personnel and equipment. The standards set forth in this document are intended for field use of the vehicle, and should be followed without deviation. All personnel involved in the handling and operation of the Orcus should read and understand this...
