The principles of manipulation are discussed and an Underwater Manipulative Construction System UMCS is discussed in detail, and existing manipulator systems for underwater work are described. A UMCS is a remote handling system which is intended to perform useful construction operations in the submarine environment, providing a means by which man can meet underwater construction requirements while being protected from the environment. A UMCS consists of seven interrelated elements a manipulator arm, tools or terminal devices, a control system, a feedback loop, power, a working platform, and the work object. Author
