Less capable equipment? That'd be difficult. The MPV Everest was only fitted with a pair of Triton XLX ROVs and a Forum Comanche ROV. None of those ROVs are particularly useful for search work unless you intend to search visually for a target sitting on the surface of the sea floor. On the basis that the CVR is almost certainly buried in mud the whole Everest exercise was essentially a waste of time and money. What's required is an acoustic sub-bottom profiler.
