The Marine Technology Society's Remotely Operated Vehicles Committee has always been the most dynamic professional committee of the Marine Technology Society. It was originated from the Undersea Vehicle Committee, which was a manned submersible committee. The Remotely Operated Vehicles Committee owes much to its past chairmen R. McGrattan, John Pritzlaff, Joe Vadus, and R. Frank Busby. They nurtured the committee through dynamic early days. Committee's growth provides a good indication of the promoting role of unmanned vehicles around the globe. The committee leadership is committed to written mission statement. Committee believes that educating the next generation is the future of the committee and focusing on this goal by awarding scholarship and working with several organizations that concentrate on education. The Remotely Operated Vehicles Committee had about 632 members from 23 countries in that majority of people are from outside the U.S.
Since its introduction into the commercial world from 1970's, unmanned vehicles became essential in the exploitation and development of deepwater gas reserves - far beyond the reach of divers and also in many other areas. Robotics technology developed for the Remotely Operated Vehicles industry and it also been adapted for a wide range of other applications which includes the space exploration and the building of the Space. The world's premier event for Commercial Diving Contractors, Remotely Operated Vehicles and Manned Submersibles Industry took place at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.
