Autonomous Underwater Vehicles and the Inertial Labs MRU-ES - 2

Exploring our planet's oceans is a tradition that goes back centuries. Humans have an intrinsic curiosity that is fueled by a desire to learn about our surroundings. Motivated by this desire, we have continued to make advancements in marine navigation technology that has enabled us to explore the unknown reaches of the planet's waters. To accomplish this feat, our ancestors used the natural tools given to them like the stars. From there, celestial navigation developed and devices such as the gnomon, kamal, sea astrolabe, quadrant, crossstaff, and sextant were created. By increasing our...

Active Sonar Passive Sonar • Active sonar uses a transmitter and receiver. This use of naturally occurring acoustic waves is effective because it eliminates the need for the vessel to create sound waves; which is done by an active sonar system but could disrupt the environment an AUV is monitoring. Passive sonar is desirable because it decreases mechanical and interfacing complexities for the system, thus reducing cost and risk of failure for operators. To learn more about the difference between active and passive sonar click here. Navigation Sensors • Motion Reference Unit (MRU) The...

Acoustic modems transmit data underwater by transforming digital signals into low-frequency sound waves that can be understood by a receiving modem. The receiving acoustic modem then converts the sound wave back to a digital signal to be read by the onboard systems used by a surface buoy or other receiving entity. This two-way communication allows for data transmission in places where conventional methods of communications don't work (GPS, high-frequency RF transmissions). Additionally, these digital signals allow the AUV to determine its position by using a technique called dead reckoning....

• Subsea Enclosure The Inertial Labs MRU have the capability to be submerged underwater when inside a stainless steel enclosure. This, of course, protects the hardware of the MRU unit while submerged underwater. Our Inertial Labs subsea enclosures is capable of diving up to 1000m, granting a vessel greater mobility and range in its diving missions. • Embedded Compass The embedded fluxgate magnetic compass is utilized for accurate heading calculations based on magnetic or true north. The fluxgate magnetic compass also aids in navigation calculation through its refined Kalman filter; capable...
