A team of UNH research engineers is using the Bathymetric Explorer and Navigator, a C-Worker 4 autonomous surface vessel (ASV), to explore the use of autonomy for charting surveys in Arctic regions. The tests will enable the group to explore how autonomous technology can integrate with traditional survey methods. The team is collaborating with the NOAA Ship Fairweathr to collect data to contribute to the Point Hope survey project. This project will fulfill part of the US Arctic Nautical Charting Plan, conducting hydrographic surveys in areas that have never previously been surveyed.
