Members of the REMUS 6000 Operations Group Stephen Murphy (right) and Mark Dennett (left) roll out one of two newly-built Hydroid REMUS 6000 Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) for transport to Florida. The AUVs, designed and developed by WHOI's Ocean Systems Lab, were commissioned by the Waitt Institute for Discovery as a key component of its new partnership with WHOI. The partnership — called the CATALYST Program — takes an innovative approach to deep-sea exploration by making available versatile and portable deep-sea survey and mapping tools and a WHOI-based operations team, which can be rapidly deployed anywhere in the world.
