In this paper the Internet-based satellite teleoperation system of the Romeo ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle), will be described. Romeo is the latest ROV prototype developed by Robotlab, the Robotics Department of the Istituto Automazione Navale of Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR-IAN) for scientific applications and robotics research. Some teleoperation tests were carried out on the period December 2001 - January 2002 in the course of the XVII Italian Expedition to Antarctica. During the experiments, manifold users connected to the World Wide Web had the possibility to remotely operate Romeo immerse in the Antarctic sea nearby the Terra Nova Bay Italian Base. These experiments are to authors' knowledge the first example of satellite teleoperation of a ROV directly usable by users surfing on the web.
