Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute from Boston has been hired to search for the wreckage of Air France 447, the Airbus A330-200 that disappeared in the South Atlantic during a severe thunderstorm.
Woods Hole participated in the search for the Titanic, along with famed oceanographer Robert Ballard. Ballard is not involved in the search for the A330 wreckage.
3 ROVs from Schilling Robotics seem to have been borrowed from their respective owners.
One from Geomar Kiel.
One was recently delivered by A380 to Boston.
( tentatively for upgrades at the manufacturer )
