Hide the Cats

WHOI technician Devin Ruddick and geophysicist Rob Reves-Sohn use a Swedish flag to cover the freshly painted Puma and Jaguar AUVs before their unveiling later that night to crew members on an expedition to the Arctic's Gakkel Ridge. Ruddick added images of the namesake cats to the shells of the vehicles, along with flags from Sweden, the U.S., Germany, and Japan, representing the homes of the scientists who took part in the expedition. Puma and Jaguar are now at sea for another expedition, this time testing the limits of vehicle-to-vehicle communications in the deep ocean.
