The Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) has developed an autonomous seafloor mapping capability for high resolution mapping of the deep ocean seafloor. The D. Allan B. is a 0.53 m diameter, Dorado class autonomous underwater vehicle equipped with a 200 kHz multibeam sonar, 110 kHz and 410 kHz sidescan sonars, and a 2-16 kHz subbottom profiler. All components of the vehicle are rated to 6,000 m depth. Using precise navigation and attitude data from a laser-ring-gyro-based inertial… CONTINUE READING
