Research Update - Team 2: Robo Squad

Team Robo Squad has defined their community as the Submarine! Currently, they are looking into two possible issues, one being the trash disposal process of a submarine, and the second option is submarine communication with the outside world.

According to the team's research, the trash on the submarine are disposed differently depending on how long the submarine's mission is. On short missions, the trash are bundled up and brought back to port for disposal. But on longer missions, the trash are dumped into the ocean.

Team need to research what the existing submarine communication process is, and if there is any limitation, and further more, if there is room for improvement?

(1) where are the trash being dumped?
(2) Can the trash be re-used and setup as undersea habitat?
