I definitely think that ROVs are critical for underwater research. In a different theory, people think that ROVs are useless, and that humans can do the same work that the ROVs can. However, ROVs are ABSOLUTELY valuable to underwater research because they can get to places that humans cannot reach, they can get pieces of information that we can’t see or grab because it is small or heavy, and they can reach dangerous places. First off, I think that ROVs are definitely useful for underwater research. They can get into small places a human can’t, like a small hole.People think that ROVs can do the same as humans can, but can they really? ROVs are similar to humans, but they can go deeper underwater, and reach things we can’t. If you have a ROV and you need to get something underwater but you can’t reach it, use the ROV!

    If the sea that to be covered is below 400 km it is possible to transmit the signal without any disruptions. But what if it is more than 400km? The signal becomes so attenuated or dispersed. The signal needs to be boosted and re-shaped. And this is where repeaters are needed. These underwater repeaters are built within the cable. It is also powered via the cable. (Phungula M. 2014) It is very important to determine whether repeaters are needed or not because it can change the whole design of…
