Okeangeofizika Ultra-Deep RTM 6000 ROVs are being used during the initial stages of the Kursk Salvage. These robots are designed to operate at depths up to 6,000 meters. Some of the video shot by the ROV at the accident site can be viewed online. You can follow the action as it unfolds on the Interfax Kursk news site. The BBC and Reuters have stories on the use of ROVs in the salvage operation. Mammoet and Smit International, who are handling the salvage, have put a web site at www.kursksalvage.com with detailed descriptions and animations of how the entire operation is going to proceed.
