What were the other options for your team’s name?  If there was only ever the one option for your name, what is the origin of your team’s name?

It was really the first option that we came up with and it originated from a Deep-Sea R.O.V video and the water was blue so we called it Deep Sea Blue.

What word/phrase is most often heard when your team is working on your ROV?

"Let's get to work!"

What was your most memorable challenge/complete fail in building your ROV? 

Designing and building our R.O.V. into the finished product that it is.

What "theme" – the scientific or physical problem to be addressed with an ROV task – would you most like to see included in future competition missions?

There was a mission from last year or a year earlier where you had to identify a plane, we thought it was really cool and we want to see it again.

What innovation do you think would completely change how ROVs solve problems in the future?

Being able to control the R.O.V with Virtual Reality technology to make it more first person.

We wouldn't.
