On-ship Dive Logging
The SeaTube V3 dive logging functionality can be implemented on different ships that ONC uses to conduct field work, and supports logging dives on many different Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV). ONC can also provide this service to other organizations that wish to use this tool during their expeditions. The system supports simultaneous dive loggers, ships, and ROVs that may be required for operations. If a satellite connection is available, the dive logs can be synchronized between ship and shore. Otherwise, the dive logs are synchronized once the ship-based server is back on-shore.
Two quick-reference guides have been created to support our clients that are using this tool (in addition to all the other help information in this page):
