A New Series of Oceanids Trials Begins

A2KUI and ALR at Loch Ness

Autosub A2KUI and Autosub Long Range (ALR) have now arrived in Scotland for the latest set of Oceanids trials developing enhanced autonomous capabilities for the future Net Zero Oceanographic Capability.

Autosub A2KUI is now in the final stage of its work up to open ocean trials and anticipated commissioning into the National Marine Equipment Pool where it will provide UK scientists with access to the latest in high-power autonomous platform technologies.

ALR, which showcased on board the RRS Sir David Attenborough at Greenwich last week, will be used to prove a further series of enhancements in its advanced under-ice navigation software for supporting the UK's polar research ambitions.
