Probe II is an ROV, or Remotely Operated Vehicle. It is remotely controlled by an operator at a remote location. It features a combination of DTMF and RC controllers, and transmits video from it's pan and tilt video camera back to the operator using a 2.4 Ghz link.

Probe II is nearing completion of the first phase of the Probe Project, which is the vehicle development stage. Phase 2 begins when the vehicle can be used on a regular basis as a development platform for more advanced systems. Ultimately, Probes will carry telemetry to monitor vehicle systems, a weather station, and will carry out "missions" lasting several days or longer in adverse weather conditions.
