  • Description:
    The Autonomous Surface Vehicle Team is completing the third and final year of a grant with the Naval Undersea Warfare Center in Keyport, WA. The final goal was to create an Autonomous Surface Vehicle (ASV) and to collaborate with the UNH ROV Team to use an Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) to perform a seafloor mapping mission in the Great Bay. This year the team had goals of improving autonomy and controls onboard the ASV, finalizing the auxiliary systems aboard the vehicle, and ultimately carrying out a proof-​of-​concept mission. Much progress was made on the development of the auxiliary systems, including those necessary for UUV deployment. The small-​scale Testing Unmanned Performance Platform (TUPPs) was also used to test code for the ASV’s propulsion system in collaboration with students from the Computer Engineering Department. Shore to Vehicle communications were also prototyped in preparation for the proof-​of-​concept mission with the help of students from the Computer Science Department. An echosounder was also mounted on the ASV to gather water depth data during the mission. Unfortunately, due to the current world events, the final proof-​of-​concept mission has been postponed beyond this year’s graduation date. However, large amounts of engineering documentation,​procedures, and manuals have been prepared to help future teams resume work as efficiently as possible, once the university reopens.
