Okeanos Explorer’s control room  as seen during an ROV dive. The high-tech, integrated control room is the nerve center for cruise operations. Here, pilots and navigators control the ROV, onboard scientists view the live video feeds from the ROV and interact with scientists on shore, onboard technicians acquire and process mapping and other data, and telepresence operations are run.
