Dorado low-speed control augmentation package (DLSCAP)

Project Manager and Lead Engineer: Brett Hobson
Lead Scientist: Steve Rock

This project is a collaboration with Stanford engineers on retrofitting new thruster packages into the Dorado vehicle, such that it can move and maneuver at low speeds. This capability will increase the number of sensor packages that can be integrated into the vehicle, in that many measurements cannot be accomplished while the vehicle is moving at 2 to 3 knots.
