A2KUI Thruster Testing

Autosub A2KUI thruster testing

The Oceanids Autosub 2000m Under-Ice (A2KUI) vehicle is now undergoing final workshop testing of its twin thrusters in their final build configuration as it approaches its first in-water trials.

The newly developed twin-thruster and X-form tail will provide redundancy and improved survivability in the hazardous under-ice operating regime that will be the focus for A2KUI science.
