"AUV" stands for autonomous underwater vehicle; they are unmanned, untethered vehicles used to conduct underwater research.
AUVs can gather data with sufficient resolution in time and space to provide an understanding of nature’s dynamics.
AUVs are well-suited to carry out swathe mapping (detailed 3-D mapping of the seabed using sonar), and large-area surveys. They can carry multiple payloads, allowing synoptic coverage; for example an AUV may simultaneously image the seafloorwhile measuring water quality.
AUVs routinely carry fluorometers, turbidity and turbulence sensors, magnetometers,and water-quality sensors.
An AUV's underwater position can be determined using acoustic positioning relative to a surface vessel or subsea transponders, by dead-reckoning using a Doppler Velocity Log to measure speed over the bottom and direction using a compass, orby inertial navigation whereby the accelerations and rotations of the AUV aremeasured and equations of motion solved.
Satpos provides a flash beacon that lights up when the AUV's are approaching the surface. It's special construction and design makes it perfect for high sensing equipment as it does not send out any noise when submerged.
