Description

Friday 18th November 2016

MASSMO Showcase

Convenor:      Prof Russell B Wynn Chief Scientist, NOC Marine Autonomous and Robotic Systems (MARS)

This half-day meeting will showcase the results of the latest Marine Autonomous Systems in Support of Marine Observations (MASSMO) demonstrator missions. MASSMO2 (sponsored by WWF) in spring 2016 involved surface and submarine vehicles operating off southwest UK targeting fronts, thermoclines, and associated fauna, while MASSMO3 (sponsored by Dstl) involves a fleet of up to 12 submarine gliders and USVs operating off northwest Scotland in autumn 2016. MASSMO3 is the NOC contribution to Exercise Unmanned Warrior, which is co-ordinated by the Royal Navy and is the largest MAS deployment in UK waters to date. Presentations from project partners and sponsors will highlight the progress being made in driving innovative use of these platforms, including novel sensors and command-and-control infrastructures.
