This report describes the Advanced Unmanned Search System AUSS, a self-propelled submersible designed to perform broad-area search and contact evaluation to depths of 20,000 feet. The system is based on a single, untethered, semiautonomous, supervisory controlled vehicle. Without the burden of a cable, or the need to place a second vehicle in the water for target investigation, this system can reduce present search operation times by an order of magnitude.
