BLACK FISH by CrazyAsian1 BLACK FISH by CrazyAsian1
Prince William Sound, Alaska 2256.

EPA Patrol log AK-023-01 - Drone diving squad 02. Diver Jonathan Mckenzie 

I was called out from Valdez today to investigate potential underwater pirating activity on the tanker route. The global oil crisis is really pushing people to extremes. As per EPA regulations I went as part of an independent investigation. The PMC's and private security handle actually dealing with the pirates. We were sent to monitor environmental conditions and check for any hazards to the water.

My fellow diver, Hernandez, and I were sent out with Agloolik, 1 of 2 of our Orca drones. Nuliajuk was in the dry dock for maintenance. 

As we neared the target area the amount of oil in the water confirmed our fears that there indeed was a pirate attack in progress. We called in the incident to HQ and began surveying the area hoping all the while that we wouldn't become the next target.

------------------------

Hey guys. Got my brain blasted by Black Fish. Then I did some research on the Exxon Valdez incident which occurred in 1989 and the Deepwater Horizon incident which happened back in 2010. Did some more research on the Alaska Oil Pipeline and I've always wanted to do something Alaskan since I went there earlier this year.

It was a lot of fun.

The Orca is a powerful underwater drone. The head is heavily armored with most of the sensitive electronics located further back towards the mid section. The body is dotted with ball cameras giving the drone near 360 degree view in all directions. These add to the drones impressive array of detection methods. The artificial muscle structures for underwater drones are much denser giving it the much needed strength to propel itself underwater. They work more efficiently when deployed in packs but are quite capable of working independently. 

*For those who are curious Agloolik and Nuliajuk are Inuit sea deities.

I like the utilitarian additions of the loops along the head/upper spine and the folding dorsal fin - presumably for easy docking/storage?  Little touches like that really make a piece.

I love RHG battles. I've never done one but they're a lot of fun to see.
I'm more on the animation side, even if it's occasional.

Fun coincidence to find you though ;D

hmmm... comparing the sizes of the drone and people, the drone could be used as a small person carrier.

This is lovely. I really like the idea of the mechanical orca. Very unique. I actually used to live in Alaska as a child and have been to Valdez many times. It's one of my favorite places on earth. :) What locations did you visit while you were there?

Robot Orcha Development Journal #437s
John and I knew the budget was going down the drain. We decided to do the only thing we could to keep our Orcha project from becoming de-funded. We made a life size robotic orcha COSTUME for an actual orcha. Honestly, stealing a live orcha from seaworld was the hardest part. Me and Dr. John have sworn to secrecy. No one must ever know that the orcha robot is an ACTUAL orcha. We decided to tell them that it is unstable and if touched would explode.
Science.
