I am trying to imagine what sort of repairs need precision machining, and finding it a bit of a challenge. Mostly, repairs involve either replacing a broken part or tightening something that has come loose. BUt I am sure that a robot that is able to do precision machining of some kind will find a few uses eventually.

The FreeHex link we gave in the article has some detail and provides further links to yet more detail. I suggest you check them out.

Turns out this isn't the first time Design News has posted a story on robotic CNC repair. Here's one from two years back:

This one also began as a (relatively) mobile underwater repair station, although specifically for repairing welds on a nuclear reactor's containment vessel.
