Talk-14: Introducing the Datamaran

Eamon Carrig, Autonomous Marine Systems

The Datamaran is a new deep water instrumentation platform offering fully autonomous operation over mission durations measured in months. It is primarily wind propelled, and is power positive. It is the worlds first self-righting catamaran. Unique deployment and payload configuration options set the Datamaran apart from other ASVs. Demonstrations will take place at the Charles River Autonomy Lab, and recent testing results will be exhibited. Design motivations, with a particular focus on the autonomy framework developed within MOOS-IvP, will also be presented.
