Abstract
In coordination with the SPAWAR Systems Center (SSC), San Diego, Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc. is proposing to develop an Autonomous Burial Vehicle (ABV) to install U.S. surveillance arrays. The proposed work focuses on: (a) designing an ABV that can bury a long surveillance array following a pre-determined route on the seabed (b) manufacturing a full-scale ABV prototype able to perform the mission, c) testing and evaluating the ABV performance with an array provided by the Navy, and d) delivering the prototype vehicle to the Navy for further testing at selected CONUS locations. This effort will culminate in an at-sea demonstration of the full mission sequence (from deployment to retirement) scheduled for August 2014.
