Abstract: Robotic vehicles that can operate in an underwater environment (e.g., Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs), Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs), and Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs)) have been drastically improved over the last two decades. Several different areas have been benefiting from their usage. However, their usage and deployment are still both labor and expertise-intensive. They needed to be transported by vessels to the deployment area. Similar to underwater robotics, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have been able to accomplish several tasks in our life, and the scope of their usage is extensively diversified. In this paper, a preliminary design of a robotic case for UAVs that allow them to operate in the underwater environment as well is presented. This robotic case is composed of a moving waterproof outer cover controlled by a servo motor. This allows the case to be open while operating in the air and closed while it needs to operate in the underwater environment. There is also an additional propeller designed to provide the diving ability to different depth levels. This robotic case is intended to be generic and suitable to be used with most of the existing UAVs without modifying aiming to add a capability to operate in the underwater medium.
