SharkCam and shark

A specially equipped Remus underwater “SharkCam,” by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, had an unpredictable attack.  Watch in the video the results…

The team was in Guadalupe Island in Mexico in 2013, to film great white sharks in the wild.



REMUS SharkCam is a specially outfitted REMUS-100 autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) equipped with video cameras and navigational and scientific instrumentation that enable it to locate, track, and film up close a tagged marine animal, such as a North Atlantic white shark (great white). The vehicle is pre-programmed to home in on a signal from a transponder beacon attached to the animal at depths up to 100 meters (330 feet) and in a variety of patterns and configurations.
