REMUS hull inspection vehicle

A Hull of a REMUS

Senior engineer Ben Allen recently tested a specially equipped REMUS 100 autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) in the test pool at the Rinehart Coastal Research Center. This particular vehicle is designed to hover and has an integrated, 16-channel acoustic sensor used to detect and map the hull of a ship or, in this case, the sides of the tank. Ben's were the first test of the vehicle in preparation for field testing in open water later this year.
