Ready for Anything

WHOI engineers Al Bradley (left) and Al Duester review the prep list for the autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) Sentry in June before its mission in the Gulf of Mexico. Later that month, Sentry proved to be a key component in detecting a 22-mile-long plume of hydrocarbons more than 3,000 feet below the surface of the Gulf, a residue of the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Bradley and Duester were instrumental in the development of the AUV ABE—which was lost at sea earlier this year—and in the design and maintenance of Sentry, ABE's successor.
