Shark Tracking, Following, and Filming of Sharks and Other Maine Animals with autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs)

Collaborators:
Discovery Channel

REMUS AUVs have been designed and enabled with a capability to accurately track, follow and film underwater animals such as basking sharks, white sharks and whales and turtles.  We have completed two field seasons of successful expedtions studying sharks and documenting never before seen behaviors.  Initial results have been published and were also made into a Discovery Channel show called 'Return of Jaws'.  Currently a new production is being made that will air in August 2014.  The results are unprecidented.
