As the offshore industry moves steadily into deeper water, and the use of man and manned vehicles becomes increasingly dangerous, expensive and impracticable, so the tools of remote intervention have to be developed and exploited. These proceedings attempt to promote these technologies, and are applicable to a variety of industries, including hydrocarbon exploration companies, defence industries, deep ocean mineral exploitation, and salvage operations.

The volume contains papers written by specialists in remote intervention and robotic technology, who analyse the state of the current systems. The authors look ahead to see what other technologies can be utilised, emphasising what the requirements of industry are for the next millennium under the sea. It contains 370 pages and 173 figures and tables.
