Successful Autosub Trials

A2KUI at Loch Ness

AutosubĀ  A2KUI has successfully completed its latest series of Harbour Acceptance Tests as we work up towards its commissioning into the National Marine Equipment Pool as a national capability for UK scientists. 25 years since the first trials of the original Autosub, A2KUI will provide oceanographers with a new generation platform for deep water (6000m) and under-ice missions.

The Loch Ness Combined Trial has also seen successful testing of new Autosub Long Range (ALR) and C2 (command-control) capabilities ready to support science missions to the Antarctic ice shelf in the new year.
