Under water joystick remote control

The SPECTRE Remote Joystick has been developed to allow precision remote control. The unit can be used with both surface and underwater

vehicles. The joystick has three axis of control, and the underwater version has an addition up/down control. A dead mans handle switch is used, so that the operator must hold the switch while in control, and the autopilot will regain control when the switch is released. This reduces the chance of an operator unintentionally controlling the vessel.
