Abstract:

This document describes a program focused on technologies pacing the development of unmanned untethered submersible vehicle systems. Specifically this program has focused on the objective of an Arctic Inspection Mission System AIMS. This program was to develop and demonstrate the technology required to perform under-ice mapping of the ocean floor as well as the ice keel employing an untethered autonomous submersible. The areas of technology addressed in this regard were 1 A sonar sensor array to perform the mapping 2 An autonomous untethered submersible vehicle system 3 A method of storing the large amounts of data 4 Computer requirements to perform this task and 5 Definition of a navigation system suitable for the AIMS mission.
