ROV and AUV enhancements and upgrades

Seafloor mapping

Project Manager and Lead Scientist: David Caress
Lead Engineer: Bill Kirkwood

As the multibeam AUV becomes operational, the project team will continue to enhance its performance, including improvements to vehicle control, obstacle avoidance, and surface control. Tools to aid in the data processing will be developed and distributed along with the open-source MB-System software used for processing and display of mapping data.
