Abstract:

During January of 2003, the first of the Seahorse vehicles was loaded into a missile tube onboard a Trident Submarine and successfully launched. This launch was part of a larger experiment called Giant Shadow, which included a number of U.S. Navy and industry participants. As part of this experiment, the Seahorse conducted two missions. The first mission consisted of two components and was conducted immediately following the launch from the submerged submarine. The first component was a minefield survey. After completing the survey, the AUV surfaced and transmitted data to a support craft via a radio link. The second component of the first mission was a simulated Q-route survey.
