A modular system for building underwater robotic vehicles (URVs), including a pressure vessel system, modular chassis elements, a propulsion system and compatible buoyancy modules. The pressure vessel system uses standardized, interchangeable modules to allow for ease of modification of the URV and accommodation of different internal and external components such as sensors and computer systems. The system also includes standard, reconfigurable connections of the pressure vessel to the modular chassis system. A standardized, modular propulsion system incl...
1. An underwater pressure vessel system, comprising: a dry end cap comprising a generally cylindrical internal portion including at least one groove extending around a perimeter of the internal portion, the at least one groove located proximate to a first end of the dry end cap and configured for receiving an o-ring seal;at least one o-ring seal coupled to the cylindrical body and seated in the at least one groove;a generally cylindrical external portion concentric to the internal portion and located distal to the first end, wherein a diameter of the ext...
