Title: Underwater Mapping Results for Seabotix vLBV300 Vehicle with Tritech Gemini 720i Imaging Sonar near Newport, OR

This document presents results from tests to demonstrate underwater mapping capabilities of an underwater vehicle in conditions typically found in marine renewable energy arrays. These tests were performed with a tethered Seabotix vLBV300 underwater vehicle. The vehicle is equipped with an inertial navigation system (INS) based on a Gladiator Landmark 40 IMU and Teledyne Explorer Doppler Velocity Log, as well as a Gemini 720i scanning sonar acquired from Tritech. The results presented include both indoor pool and offshore deployments. The indoor pool deployments were performed on October 7, 2016 and February 3, 2017 in Corvallis, OR. The offshore deployment was performed on April 20, 2016 off the coast of Newport, OR (44.678 degrees N, 124.109 degrees W). During the mission period, the sea state varied between 3 and 4, with an average significant wave height of 1.6 m. Data was recorded from both the INS and the sonar.

  1. The DOE Marine and Hydrokinetic Data Repository was established to receive, manage and make available all marine and hydrokinetic-relevant data generated from projects funded by the DOE Water Power Programs. This includes data from DOE-funded projects associated with any portion of the marine and hydrokinetic project life-cycle (e.g. resource characterization, device development, demonstration), as well as data produced by DOE-funded research. The database includes wave, tidal, current, and ocean thermal energy, and contains information on the various energy conversion technologies, companies active in the field, and development of projects in the water.
