The Mission 2006

Task nº 1: Move from launch/release point and submerge. Pass through a validation gate without contacting any part of the structure.

Task nº 2: Locate a target situated on the bottom of the tank and "hit" it using a marker dropped from the vehicle.

Task nº 3: Locate a mid-water target and make contact with the front of the vehicle. The target will be reflective (both optically and acoustically).

Task nº 4: Surface within a designated surfacing zone which will be marked by means of an active acoustic device.

Lessons Learnt 2006

  • Most problems came from basic engineering

  • Teams with little budget struggled

  • Team with underwater research background had an edge

  • Amazing result

    • No prior training in the pool

    • Yet 4 teams made it to the final

    • 2 teams managed to perform at least 2 tasks

    • More students and labs now ‘think AUVs’

    • Quality of vehicles was outstanding

  • Continuity is assured for a few more years

    • MOD is on board

    • EPSRC is on-board

    • French DGA (MOD) is willing to join the party

    • Industry? It is up to you!


The Future 2006

  • Encourage more teams to participate

    • Keep Missions at the same level of difficulty

    • Get involvement across Europe

  • Better facility

    • Bigger Pool

    • More time in water for teams

  • Encourage focus on autonomy

    • Help required on basic engineering

    • Financial support from industry welcomed
