Makai, UH in B-SAUV Trials

22/01/2015 by Sharon Shahzad

Makai Ocean Engineering and the University of Hawaii (UH) have jointly developed a novel autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) that can effectively deploy seafloor sensing equipment by combining features of a free-swimming AUV and those of a bottom crawling vehicle.

This ‘hybrid’ autonomous underwater vehicle is called the Bottom-Skimming AUV, or B-SAUV.

The B-SAUV is propelled by thrusters but can touch, glide along, and interact with the seafloor. The B-SAUV is unique in that it autonomously adjusts its wet weight (by dynamically controlling its buoyancy) in order to control how it interacts with the ocean floor. The B-SAUV moves through the ocean using its thrusters and operating in three different buoyancy modes:

– Low Buoyancy: the B-SAUV presses on the seafloor with its full wet weight;
– Medium Buoyancy: the B-SAUV lightly ‘skims’ along the bottom at a desired wet weight (to adjust for existing bottom conditions);
– High Buoyancy: the B-SAUV ‘flies’ temporarily above the bottom in the water column in order to overcome obstacles.

The B-SAUV is controlled by a computer hardware and software system that, in addition to autonomously controlling buoyancy, enables it to navigate autonomously to a predefined location and install (and log data from) oceanographic sensors in the seafloor. These sensors are carried as a payload within the body of the B-SAUV and can be used for environmental monitoring or remote sensing.

What Does A Snap Election Mean For Recruitment?

2017-04-25 08:00:00 +0100

On Tuesday 18th April, Prime Minister Theresa May called a snap general election for 8th June, taking the nation by surprise. Rather than waiting until 2020, voters will now be casting their ballots in a matter of weeks. The hope for the government is that a Tory victory give the prime minister a strong mandate in parliament as Brexit negotiations begin. This sudden decision has been embraced by many in the recruitment industry due to the anticipated st...
