ready Jason Virtual Van

General Information
Jason is a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) deep-diving vessel that gives shipboard scientists immediate, real-time access to the sea floor. Jason is connected by a long fiberoptic tether to its research ship. The 10-km (6 mile) tether delivers power and instructions to Jason and fetches data from it. As part of the Jason ROV project, the Virtual Van data acquisition system was developed to automatically captures the information in the control-van during ROV operations including up to four simultaneous video sources, vehicle data, scientific instrument data, and event data. All this information is accessible via a web-browser in real-time and is also available to the scientists after the cruise for post-cruise data access and analysis.
