A class of small (50 kg, 2 m length), reusable autonomous underwater vehicles capable of operating at speeds cm/s with ranges several thousand kilometers and durations of months has been developed and tested. The vehicles, autonomous profiling floats with wings, execute sawtooth patterns between the surface, where they are located and com to shore, and depths of O(1000 m). These vehicles are commanded remotely and report results to shore in near real tim ent approaches to the various design… Expand
