Autonomous Seakeeping Capability for Unmanned Surface Vessels

DEVELOPING AUTONOMOUS SEAKEEPING CAPABILITY FOR UNMANNED SURFACE VESSELS (USV)

DIP Contribution: $150,000

Project Summary: Seeking to better understand the seakeeping performance of USVs and from this to develop improved autonomous seakeeping capability that would enable a USB to operate under sever seastate conditions. This capability will enhance the capacity of USBs to complete complex missions in complex environments and assist industry with developing advanced sensor payloads for USVs.
