    Total Days: 5
    The dive EVA objectives included: Integrated EVA science operations (using the Coral in situ metabolism instrument, CISME); IV Support System (timeline tracking, EV crew real time tracking with "Navigator", Remote viewing of EV crew); Integrated Informatics (EVA Navigation & MCC crew tracking); EVA equipment transportation (testing modular tool transport system & small tool transport on EVA suit); Core sample acquisition (using UW drill for coral sampling); Testing of the UW tablet or iDive.

    Mission 3 - NEEMO XXII
    Principal Investigator: Bill Todd, NASA/USF

    Total Days: 10
    NASA sent an international crew to Aquarius in July 2017 to prepare for future deep space missions during this 10-day NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operations (NEEMO) 22 expedition which began on June 18, 2017. NEEMO 22 focused on both exploration spacewalks and objectives related to the International Space Station and deep space missions. As an analogue for future planetary science concepts and strategies, marine science was performed under the guidance of FIU marine scientists.
