In the 15th episode of the SUT Underwater Technology Podcast, engineer and author Bruce Butler is interviewed by Steve Hall about the innovative and risky 1990s mission of the ‘Theseus’ AUV, designed to lay a fibre-optic cable under Canada’s Arctic to connect with subsea monitoring equipment as part of Project Spinnaker – a fascinating story that will be seen by future generations as one of the key robotic deployments that paved the way for widespread adoption of autonomous underwater vehicles.
