James Cameron to Do His Latest Project with WHOI

James Cameron has recently entered into a partnership with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) and has undertaken a new project.

The Academy Award-winning Hollywood director, Cameron has given his submarine to WHOI, which he had used to dive 35,800 feet down into the West Pacific. On Monday, WHOI has announced that he is having a deep-ocean exploration partnership with them.

Cameron has also agreed to join advisory board for Center for Marine Robotics, launched by WHOI recently. Neither of the parties disclosed the cost of the project. However, Cameron's statement, which was published in Popular Mechanics in 2011, asserted that it would take some $8 million to construct it.

The submersible project is dubbed the Deepsea Challenger submersible system. The vehicle was built by Cameron led team in seven years. He used it to move down to the 6.83-mile-deep ditch known as Challenger Deep, the deepest part of Earth's Oceans.

"I've been informally associated with WHOI for more than 20 years, and I welcome this opportunity to formalize the relationship with the transfer of the Deepsea Challenger submersible system", said Cameron, in a statement.

Cameron is a Hollywood director who has written and directed international blockbusters like The Terminator, True Lies, Avatar, The Abyss and Titanic.
