IMOS will cover the costs of AUV calibration, preparation, insurance, transport within Australia, and access to and storage of the data. Ship-time for the deployment, tracking and recovery of the AUV are the responsibility of the local node requesting the deployment. The use of the AUV must comply with IMOS’ objective to “offer open access to data arising from research infrastructure provided through the IMOS to the national and international marine research communities”.
The Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) called Sirius is capable of undertaking high resolution survey work. This experimental platform is a modified version of a mid-size robotic vehicle called Seabed built at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
The submersible Sirius is equipped with:
The vehicle is controlled by an on-board, PC-104 based computing platform which is used for sampling sensor information and running the vehicle’s low level control algorithms.
The submersible Sirius was built and is maintained by the The Australian Centre for Field Robotics based out of the School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering at The University of Sydney.
