The Mission

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

  • 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

  • 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
