In addition, Ocean Infinity' search will be assisted by a fleet of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) to search for Stellar Daisy.

When they locate the vessel, they will conduct a survey for the wreck, prior to trying to recover the voyage data recorder.

Ocean Infinity's AUVs have the capability of operating in water depths up to 6,000 meters.

Moreover, Stellar Daisy crew's final message was that the vessel was taking on water and the two survivor noted that the hull cracked before sinking.

Concluding, the families of the missing seafarers petitioned the South Korean government to continue the search for the vessel, and their campaign gathered over 100,000. Therefore, Korea's Ministry of Foreign Affairs employed Ocean Infinity and stated that the search should be completed by March.
