This paper illustrates the components, capabilities, and some characteristic applications of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Jetyak - a small autonomous surface vehicle (ASV) designed for the collection of oceanographic data from shallow or dangerous waters. The Jetyak is the result of custom modifications to a Mokai jet-powered kayak, including an A-frame and sea chest for installation of instrumentation, servo-driven controls and an Ardupilot autopilot for autonomous operation, an… Expand
