  1. User-Friendly 3D Environmental Profiler AUV

    SBC: NEKTON RESEARCH LLC            Topic: 813

    We propose Ranger ES, a low cost, autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) for three-dimensional profiling and water samplings of chemical, physical, and biological parameters of oceanic and fresh waters. The AUV will be programmable by point and click to analyze a volume of water continuously for the selected parameters. After returning for pickup after a day¿s run, it will download its data into a ...
