4Deep Submersible Microscope and Autonomous Module deployed on R/V Endeavor

As part of the pilot cruise on board R/V Endeavor, Dr. Melissa Omand’s group will deploy the submersible holographic microscope and autonomous recording module to study sediment particles in Northern Atlantic. The Autonomous Control module is a new product developed by 4Deep which allows fully autonomous recordings of holograms for up to 5.5 hours on the internal 250 GB SSD drive. The device can be controlled, and recorded holograms downloaded over the provided fiberoptic link.
