A device controlling the depth and motion of an object underwater by using a processor to accurately control the volume of gas within, and thereby the buoyancy, depth, and motion (rate of ascent and descent) of, a buoyancy chamber that is attached to the object. The device has a central component incorporating a processor and associated memory, the processor being in communication with: a buoyancy chamber and a means for measuring the volume or level of gas within, at least one gas control mechanism(s) to input and remove gas from the buoyancy chamber; a...
1. Apparatus having variable buoyancy for controlling the depth and motion of an object in water, comprising:a buoyancy chamber configured to hold a volume of gas, wherein the buoyancy chamber is an ambient pressure container;gas control means for adding gas to and removing gas from the buoyancy chamber;processor means for receiving signals from and sending signals to the gas control means for controlling the volume of gas within the buoyancy chamber in order to control the buoyancy, depth, and motion of the buoyancy chamber and an object associated with...
