Tethys with its master
Chief Technologist Jim Bellingham, shown here, led design and development of the Tethys underwater robot.
The vehicle took four years of design and development work, and underwent real-world testing cruising around Monterey Bay for much of the month of October, the team said in a statement. During those tests, Tethys completed a four-day expedition with ample battery life to spare.
