While history is not in agreement about the origins of the first remotely operated vehicle, the motivation to explore what was beneath the waves is a familiar motivation for EarthEcho’s founder, Philippe Cousteau. The first tethered ROV, the POODLE, was developed in 1953. While ROV technology continues to allow deeper and more extreme exploration, we still know less about what lies in the deep ocean than what happens on the surface of the moon.
