A first peek at the latest demostration in Norway seen at Maritime Robotics faceboook page.
A development team, headed by Sérgio Ferreira, underwent a series of preliminary tests to the operational readiness of the LSTS toolchain in regards to VANETS (Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks). The focus was to use the UAV as a communication's relay that would bridge the network gap between the operation hub on land and the smaller operation network, centered on the ASV. With the UAV bridging the two networks the land site would be able to collect that from the AUV, operating beneath the ASV. These tests were integrated with the REP 16 Atlantic (link) annual exercise with the Portuguese Navy. This year participations included CMRE, the Belgian Navy, SPAWAR and Oceanscan-OMT. Observing this exercise were members from the Naval Undersea Warfare Center, NASA and JPI Oceans.
From June 2nd to 4th, LSTS participated in the “Oceans Business Week” where we showcased the Networked Ocean project, in order to allow the projects visibility and promotion among specific interest groups and the general public.
Sérgio Ferreira and Paulo Dias participated in the Gunnerus exercises in Trondheim from 24th of April to the 30th of April. The experiment served as a first trial in the MBR radio integration that will be tested during the Networked Oceans project. The initial integration with X8 UAVs was successful and now must be extended to other systems in the toolchain.
During the last month, João Sousa visited NTNU to discuss detailed plans.
We are happy to inform that the first meeting took place on February 26th.
