AquaDevil was our 3rd attempt at an underwater ROV. We first used AquaDevil in the MATE 2010 competition, where we won 6th place, and received many compliments on the design from the judges.

AquaDevil continues to be used to this day as a back-up robot. She most recently saw use at the 2013 NURC alongside ROVINA, where she earned third place.
