In this paper, we introduce the Lehigh Ocean Research Craft Autonomous (LORCA) - a high performance USV with applications to surveillance and monitoring tasks. Compact (1.2 m), lightweight (5 kg) and robust (one-piece carbon fiber design), LORCA is capable of speeds of 80 kph (50 mph). It was also designed to be capable of operations in ocean waves, with self-righting ability in all sea states. We first review the LORCA design and technical specifications. We then discuss our initial work in… CONTINUE READING
