  • Description:
    The EX-12-05 Leg 1 Sentry AUV cruise represents a partnership between NOAA Okeanos Explorer

    Program, National Science Foundation (NSF) and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) -

    with each partner bringing different but complementary objectives to the table. NOAA's Office of

    Ocean Exploration and Research (OER) primary focus during EX-12-05 Leg 1 is to test the use of

    an AUV operated from Okeanos Explorer while the ship is outfitted for "full" exploration mode

    (with joint ROV operations), to explore what it will take to integrate an AUV into telepresenceenabled

    exploration. NSF and WHOI objectives for this cruise include a series of engineering trials

    and experiments of the Sentry AUV capabilities. NSF objectives for this cruise also include survey

    data collection using the Sentry AUV and Okeanos Explorer systems that will support a follow-on

    NSF-funded project at Blake Ridge in 2013 with Principle Investigator, Cindy Van Dover.
