Lego ROV Jason II


Last Updated . Click "Updates" above to see the latest.

Jason is a 6500 meter rated Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) operated by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in Woods Hole, Massachusetts.  The vehicle was designed and built in 2002 and has completed over 800 dives.  His job is to provide a platform for scientists to remotely reach the ocean floor and gather observations and obtain samples to further understand our oceans, the Earth, and ultimately the universe.  Jason has been diving to undersea volcanos, hydrothermal vent fields, shipwrecks, and many other areas of interest.

Features include:

Two operating six function manipulators

Cameras on working pan and tilts

Fully functioning swing arms and science basket

Spinning propellers

Set of push cores

As a pilot of Jason myself, I wanted to celebrate this relatively unknown icon by designing a Lego replica and hopefully bring Ocean Science and Engineering to a wider audience.  

Thank you very much for supporting this project!
