seabed vehicle testing

Eight and counting

Hanumant Singh, of the WHOI Applied Ocean Physics and Engineering Department, tests a newly-built SeaBED autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) off the WHOI dock in May 2009. Eight of these AUVs — which can fly slowly or hover over the seafloor, making them ideally suited for detailed imaging — are now being utilized by universities and government labs both in the U.S. and abroad. This one is headed to the University of Southern Mississippi after testing. (Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
