BioCam on Trial

The Oceanids team are now in Loch Ness testing the integration of the BioCam sensor system with Autosub Long Range.

Led by Prof. Blair Thornton at the University of Southampton, the BioCam project is developing innovative hardware and software for autonomous measurements of benthic biology. This trial is the final stage of testing prior to open ocean validation trials starting in September.

The Oceanids team are also testing new vehicle navigation software ready for the upcoming 2022 Thwaites Glacier science deployment.
