For those of you who are unfamiliar with an ROV, an ROV is a remotely operated underwater vehicle which can plunge deep into the ocean.

The ROV is currently searching for the submersible on the sea floor explained the US Coast Guard’s Northeast District in a recent tweet.

Along with the ROV that is currently scouring the sea floor, another ROV from a French vessel has also been deployed and equipment from Magellan will also be assisting.

Keep in mind that aircraft are also scanning their assigned search zone as well as medical staff that are currently on scene.

“Experts within the unified command are evaluating the information,” the Coast Guard said. It is unclear if this debris field is connected to the missing submersible. The Coast Guard said it plans to host a press briefing at 3 p.m. ET to “discuss findings from the Horizon Arctic’s ROV on the sea floor near the Titanic.”
