Using both underwater and surface autonomous vehicles, work is underway to establish an autonomous coordinated network of unmanned marine vehicles. This research, in collaboration with NUWC Keyport, is also to be used to develop test beds to confirm general autonomy in future autonomous US Navy platforms and multi-platform systems. The UNH research efforts in this area will also be applied to seafloor mapping scenarios to test for increased efficiency and quantity of ocean measurements.
Funding has been provided by NAVSEA, NEEC, NUWC Keyport, Hubbell Incorporated, and NH Sea Grant.
