Hercules

Hercules is a neutrally buoyant remotely operated vehicle (ROV) that is used exclusively in conjunction with its mating vehicle, Argus, to which it is connected with a 30m length of neutrally buoyant tether. It is the expedition's vehicle with the most maneuverability, and it is used for the most precise and delicate operations. Hercules is equipped with six thrusters that allow it to "fly" in any direction, like a helicopter.
