Human kind has always been intrigued by space but what seems to not make sense is why we aren’t just as intrigued about our ocean. As the life blood of all things on earth we need to understand the approximate 71% of water mass that surrounds us [1]. This is the goal of our paper, bringing interest back to the ocean using unmanned underwater vehicles. In this paper we will discuss the functionality, build and deployment of an intelligent unmanned drone. The mission of this underwater vehicle is to explore the ocean to understand complex ocean dynamics and bring forth the wonders of the ocean to the masses. We will systematically break down the design process of our drone circuitry and sensors on board, then see why we chose these components and sensors to successfully achieve our objective of collecting targeted data from the ocean.
