Proceedings of the Maritime Big Data Workshop
The NATO STO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation, as part of its mission to put forward the technological maritime research, with the support of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Programme has organized on ...
JANUS-based services for operationally relevant underwater applications
This paper presents the design, test, and experimentation at sea of four JANUS-based services for operationally relevant underwater applications: 1) first contact and language switching; 2) transmission of automatic ...
Benefit assessment of glider adaptive sampling in the Ligurian Sea
The benefits of piloting a glider during a 6-day period via an adaptive sampling procedure in a 80 × 60 km2 marine area are assessed under a fully operational framework. The glider trajectory was adapted to reduce the ocean ...
High resolution sonar (tutorial slides)
On adaptive underwater object detection
A new algorithm for the detection of underwater objects in sonar imagery is proposed. One particularly novel component of the algorithm also detects the presence of, and estimates the orientation of, sand ripples. The ...
Volumetric distribution of oceanographic fields estimated from remote sensing and in situ observations from autonomous underwater vehicles of opportunity
A main challenge of military oceanography (MILOC) is to assess the oceanographic conditions of denied/highrisk marine regions. Monitoring technologies are limited to those that can provide access to these regions. Remote ...
Antisubmarine warfare applications for autonomous underwater vehicles: the GLINT09 field trial results
Surveillance in antisubmarine warfare (ASW) has traditionally been carried out by means of submarines or frigates with towed arrays. These techniques are manpower intensive. Alternative approaches have recently been suggested ...
A distributed ID assignment and topology discovery protocol for underwater acoustic networks
This paper presents a new protocol to self assign node IDs in an Underwater Acoustic Network (UAN). The proposed solution, termed DIVE for Distributed Id assignment and topology discoVEry, is fully distributed and ...
Underwater source localization using a hydrophone-equipped glider
Buoyancy-driven underwater gliders are autonomous underwater vehicles that were originally developed to collect oceanographic data. CMRE is studying the use of this technology for the characterization of denied areas, ...
pOctaver, adding scripting language to MOOS
NURC uses MOOS-IvP in a scientific research and rapid prototyping environment. Contributions to the open-source suite of MOOS-IvP software is readily made by programmers adept at C++ programming. However, the utility of ...
