As the use of Marine Autonomous Systems (MAS) for science, industry and defence applications increases and becomes complex new challenges arise. One such challenge is around the navigation of vehicles and communications (vehicle to vehicle and operator to vehicle). This workshop will explore how MAS is currently operating, the advances in the last few years, how these vehicles interact with satellites and how we will be utilising vehicles in the future in an increasingly human independent way. Challenges include: Vehicle to Vehicle Communication, Swarming of vehicles, over the horizon connectivity for command and control of vehicles and meaningful data transfer from vehicle to vehicle and to operators.
