Abstract:

The long-term goal of this project is to develop an effective field-reconfigurable non-metallic AUV platform for use in littoral ocean sampling and to benefit broader Navy goals related to improved Mine Counter Measures. Accomplishing this goal requires additional effort in the hardening and refinement of the existing Morpheus AUV for fleet operations. Reliable reconfigurable AUV platforms with extended capabilities and sensing options are the building blocks of proposed multi-vehicle cooperative REA and MCM missions that will eventually remove navy divers from life threatening situations.
