        abstract:  Multibeam mapping, single beam, water column sonar, sub-bottom profile, water column profile, ship sensor, ROV sensor, video and image data will all be collected during this mission.
        purpose:  The overall goal of this cruise is to collect data to aid in the development of a baseline characterization of the targeted operating areas. Science objectives are to identify and explore the diversity and distribution of benthic habitats and features in the region; to conduct ROV dives along the Sigsbee Escarpment and in adjacent deep-water canyons; to locate and characterize underwater cultural heritage sites; to groundtruth acoustic seep data and characterize associated habitat; to recover long deployment experiments from the seafloor; and to deploy Argo floats.
        credit:  Credit for this cruise goes to the NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration and Research and its Okeanos Explorer Program.

                code:  Seirios
            description:  Seirios is a 6,000m rated camera platform designed for ocean exploration as part of a two-body tethered system. As a stainless steel framed platform of cameras, lights, and sensors, Seirios operates from the NOAA ship Okeanos Explorer (R337) along with the ROV Deep Discoverer. Attached to the ship by the electro-optical-mechanical 0.68 cable, Seirios carries an articulated HD camera and six 400W HMI lights for video production and improved lighting for D2. Fore and aft lateral thrusters enable Seirios to turn 360 degrees to maintain illumination in a desired direction. Seirios can also move laterally, within the constraints of the its cable. With the ROV attached by a 30m neutrally buoyant tether, one significant reason for utilizing Seirios in this two-body configuration is to decouple Deep Discoverer from the ship's motion. A suite of sensors provide real-time measurements of conductivity, temperature, depth, pressure, and more transmitted through high speed fiber optic communications.

                description:  The N0VA has a high resolution color CCD sensor providing outstanding picture quality and performance in a very compact housing. The integral light ring illuminates objects up to several meters away. It is ideal for mounting on ROV manipulators, for down-hole video and for remote tooling applications where providing external lighting is difficult if not impossible. The camera features a fixed focus, wide angle lens and requires no external controls in normal operation. Optional control of the LED lighting can be provided. The Nova is Ideal for applications where size is of critical importance, but high image quality is also a requirement.

                code:  Seirios
            description:  Seirios is a 6,000m rated camera platform designed for ocean exploration as part of a two-body tethered system. As a stainless steel framed platform of cameras, lights, and sensors, Seirios operates from the NOAA ship Okeanos Explorer (R337) along with the ROV Deep Discoverer. Attached to the ship by the electro-optical-mechanical 0.68 cable, Seirios carries an articulated HD camera and six 400W HMI lights for video production and improved lighting for D2. Fore and aft lateral thrusters enable Seirios to turn 360 degrees to maintain illumination in a desired direction. Seirios can also move laterally, within the constraints of the its cable. With the ROV attached by a 30m neutrally buoyant tether, one significant reason for utilizing Seirios in this two-body configuration is to decouple Deep Discoverer from the ship's motion. A suite of sensors provide real-time measurements of conductivity, temperature, depth, pressure, and more transmitted through high speed fiber optic communications.
