Abstract
The paper describes the design and initial field-testing of a remotely operated submersible drill rig able to obtain continuous cores of soil and/or rock up to 6 m long. The rig mast angle is hydraulically actuated covering 90 degrees of altitude. This enables both a fully horizontal position used for deployment onto and recovery of the rig from the seabed, as well as a fully vertical position during coring. The frame is equipped with positioning and inclination sensors for accurate register of ...
