Abstract:

The Advanced Unmanned Search System AUSS uses new technologies and completely new methods to locate, identify, and inspect objects on the ocean bottom at depths from 2,000 feet to 20,000 feet. AUSS achieves an order-of- magnitude improvement in the overall search rate of conventional towed, tethered, and manned systems, and it provides the capability to perform immediate and detailed optical inspection of objects found.
