1. This is a clip of the video streamed in real-time from the IR camera on the UPSV back to shore. The inset shows a regular camera mounted alongside the IR camera to show the difference during night time operations.

  2. Example of 'watching' the UPSV do a sonar survey. The UPSV transmits its position estimate and status to the shore station. The position is displayed in Google Earth along with the planned survey lines.

  3. This is a screen capture of the planning process for doing a multibeam survey for the UPSV. By dragging a box (polygon) in Google Earth we define the survey bounds. Then we run a script on the polygon to generate the UPSV mission which consists of tracklines at specified line spacing (based on the sensor and the estimated water depth). Then we can visualize the survey to check it and upload it directly to the UPSV for execution.

  4. This is a time lapse video showing the path of the UPSV using two GoPro cameras - one mounted up high for the bird's eye view and one mounted directly on the UPSV.
