Gregory Skomal (MA Marine Fisheries), Continuous Autonomous Tracking and Imaging of White Sharks and Basking Sharks Using a REMUS-100 AUV

Abstract-We present results from field experiments in which a
REMUS-100 autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) tracked
multiple tagged sharks in the open ocean over periods of several
hours. The Oceanographic Systems Laboratory (OSL) developed
an algorithm that allows the vehicle to use information from an
active transponder to provide a three dimensional track of the
animal with high spatial and high temporal resolution. Field
studies were conducted in the spring and summer of 2012. Two
basking sharks and four white sharks were tagged and tracked
for 1-3 hours. Here we present the engineering developments
required to create the system.
