Exploring Now
We are at testing new coordinated operations of ROV Argus, AUV Mesobot, and hybrid ROV/AUV NUI from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution to accelerate our ability to explore the ocean! Currently, midwater specialist vehicle Mesobot is diving to sample within the nightly migration of Twilight Zone creatures to the surface. Join us for a live Q&A with the Mesobot team at 8 am Pacific on Friday 9/24 to learn more3 hours 2 minutes ago

OECI Technology Demonstration: Nereid Under Ice (NUI) Vehicle + Mesobot

This expedition aboard E/V Nautilus will support the testing of novel or emerging capabilities with two different autonomous underwater vehicles from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI). Funded by NOAA Ocean Exploration through the Ocean Exploration Cooperative Institute (OECI), one of the OECI’s goals is to build towards autonomous vehicles sharing information, allowing each vehicle to be more effective and to provide increased situational awareness to the vehicle operators aboard or ashore.
