The Ocean System Laboratory's research vehicle: RAUVER, is a field-proven hover-capable Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV). It is designed for inshore (sheltered water) inspection and light-intervention with very low logistics. RAUVER Mk1, a tethered AUV/ROV was launched in June 1999. RAUVER Mk2, a full AUV, was launched in August 2004. News (1 Feb '05): RAUVER's navigation system is currently being upgraded with a Doppler Velocity Log (DVL), which will provide significantly greater accuracy and usability than the current system. Updated specifications will be published when available. The navigation system upgrade will be completed on 1 June 2005
