ABSTRACT:
The Martha's Vineyard Coastal Observatory (MVCO) was recently developed and
installed by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution to serve as an
accessible facility for long term measurements of coastal ocean processes.
The Oceanographic Systems Lab (OSL) at WHOI has also developed REMUS, a
small, easy to use, low cost AUV, which is suitable for coastal
environmental survey missions. Typical sensors include CTD, side scan
sonar, forward look sonar, optical backscatter, bioluminescence, chemical
sensing, and bathymetry. REMUS is capable of operating for 8 hours at 5
knots, on a single battery charge. On-board navigation systems provide for
mapping and localization accuracy's of 20 meters or less. Recently, OSL has
developed a deep version of REMUS capable of performing autonomous survey
missions to depths of up to 6000 meters. This talk will describe the system
architecture, installation, and operation of the MVCO, as well as discuss
REMUS capabilities and applications.
