UW Science Control Center

Pamela Lezaeta, IFE contractor for technical operations, briefs scientists at the UW Science Control Center on how to use the console controls. Three flat screens carry images from the ROV control room and several locations on the ship's deck. When Hercules begins underwater exploration, live images will be transmitted instantly to these screens where scientists can study them. Pamela explains how the scientists can speak into the microphone directly to specific scientists or to the pilots of Argus and Hercules aboard the ship. Scientists can also select which data should be displayed from the four computer screens below the flat screens. Watch this site for a live feed starting July 23!
