On page 73 of the May/June, 2003 issue of Underwater Magazine, VideoRay is featured in an article entitled “Searching for Shuttle Debris.” The article includes an interview with FBI Dive Team Coordinator Robert Chacon. Excerpt:

Underwater: How did the Phantom ROV Perform?

Robert Chacon: “Our Phantom 2+2…proved too big for this particular environment. Most of the search area we were in was 12-15 feet (4-5m) in depth with heavy vegetation and it was easier to splash divers than utilize the Phantom in that environment. The Savannah River Authority had a bit more success with their VideoRay ROV, due to its much smaller size.”
