LSTS has collaborated with MBARI on several occasions, including the 2013 CANON initiative, providing AUV´s, UAV´s and exchanging experiences in command and control of autonomous vehicles.

This spring MBARI is set out to take CANON another step further, deploying LRAUV´s (long-range autonomous underwater vehicles), one of which is equipped with third-generation Environmental Sample Processor (3G ESP) to collect environmental DNA. Hopefully this will help provide a better pictures of the environmental shifts in the Monterey Bay.


October 7th through the 18th, researchers from LSTS visited MBARI to participate in CANON ( field experiments. Significantly this involved an LSTS Xtreme 2 AUV and associated communication gear being deployed in near shore waters in Monterey Bay along with other assets including ships and AUVs from MBARI.
