This is Fat Albert and Simon. Fat Albert is the piece of equipment just in case there is any confusion. The initial sonar target check outs on the Hercules search will be made with Fat Albert our custom built (by us) drop camera system and as I write this Fat Albert is on the way to becoming Fat Albert 2 while we tweek and fiddle with it. The operational brief is simple, we need to know exactly where the boat is, exactly where Fat Albert is, exactly where both are relative to each other. We need video, stills and seabed mapping and it all needs to work in over 200ft of water, oh and did I mention the budget is next to zero? Fat Albert by the way was the name that the Hercules was affectionately known by amongst its crews.
