AbstractThe Canadian Self-Contained Off-the-Shelf Underwater Testbed, or C-SCOUT, is an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) designed and built by graduate students at Memorial University of Newfoundland and work term students employed by the Institute for Marine Dynamics. The AUV is part of the NSERC strategic grant: Offshore Environmental Engineering Using Autonomous Underwater Vehicles. The project applies the vehicle technology to the problem of environmental monitoring of offshore oil production facilities. Future variations of the AUV can be configured for a wide variety of missions including search and survey, under ice operations, iceberg profiling, oceanographic sampling, and mine detection and countermeasures.
