The MOOS-DAWG 2017 meeting is hosted by MIT and funding for the main event is derived solely from the attendee registration fees. Further support has been provided by Battelle. Funding for the kickoff barbecue is provided by Riptide Autonomous Solutions, and funding for MOOS-IvP over the last decade has been funded by ONR Code 311 and Battle Maritime Systems. (see below).
