Our goal is to develop a compact bioluminescence detector system suitable for use on small AUVs for the purpose of mapping coastal bioluminescence. We plan to develop two identical bioluminescence bathyphotometers. One is to be evaluated for use on the REMUS AUV. The second is to be equipped with an independent support system permitting its use as a profiling and slow towing instrument for calibration of the AUV instrument package and for research in coastal waters related to the proposed naval end-use of the AUV bioluminescence detector and for environmental monitoring.
