Marine Autonomous and Robotic Systems (MARS) showcase and workshops

National Oceanography Centre with RRS Discovery

24–27 February 2015 – Recent capital investment, as part of the UK Government ‘Eight Great Technologies’ initiative, means that the NERC MARS facility now comprises the largest and most diverse research fleet of marine autonomous systems in Europe.

The aim of this week long programme of MARS events is to ensure that potential end users and industry partners are fully aware of the capabilities of the upgraded fleet, which includes Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs), Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs), Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs) and submarine gliders.

This event is now closed.

Event dates: 
Tuesday 24 February 2015 - 00:00 to Friday 27 February 2015 - 00:00
