The main science targets envisioned are:
There are a few main technical drivers: hole diameter, transport requirement, and a clean- access requirement.
We anticipate that the items (1), (2), and (3) can be addressed by one “class” of drill, and that (4) may require a different class. In particular, if the ROV/AUV requires a larger diameter hole (1m), that would be incompatible with the transport requirements and energy transmitted down hole (volume of hot water). Both classes of drill are required for different science targets.
