The primary goal of this edition of REP is to demonstrate synergies between aerial, surface and underwater robotic vehicles, focusing on communication routing strategies and control dissemination. Moreover, developments will put emphasis on multi-vehicle operations both homogeneous and heterogeneous in nature.

The standard expected objetives for this years execise are:

  • E1 - Search & Rescue with an UAV equipped with an IR camera
  • E2 - Water column survey with 2 AUVs
  • E3 - Control and monitoring through multi-hop acoustic network
  • E4 - Adaptive multibeam survey
  • E5 - ASV + UAV has communication relays for AUV
  • E6 - Multivehicle network control
  • E7 - AUV surface auto-docking
  • E8 - UAV flight completely autonomous
  • E9 - Wavy drops with Mariner
  • E10 - Collection of water samples
  • E11 - Water parameters characterization with vehicle formation
  • E12 - Swarm planning on auvs
  • E13 - Autonomous VTOLairplane Mission
  • E14 - NRP Trident joint operations
  • E15 - Manta Gateway Acoustics testing
  • E16 - Xtreme-2 Wreckage Survey
  • VIP - Lisbon VIP Day

Nevertheless, with the participation of the Portuguese Navy objectives of oportunity might present themselves which will in turn test the LSTS's operational readiness and hability to quickly react to dynamic and evolving environment
