Abstract:

The adaptive deployment of autonomous underwater vehicles AUVs in coastal waters is expected to form a large part of future Navy operations. To prepare for this, the Adaptive Sampling and Prediction ASAP team is charged with developing and investigating methods to direct and utilize such vehicles, in order to assimilate their data into numerical ocean models and predict future conditions as accurately as possible. The long-term goal of the PI is to work with the ASAP team to provide a reliable and relocatable ensemble modeling and adaptive sampling framework, from which informed decisions on deployment of AUVs can be made rapidly. In the future, the methodology could be used to ask advanced questions on optimal, cost-efficient design of sensors and platforms, in conjunction with gliderAUV planning software, survey error metrics etc.
