The Story of Autosub
ALR1500 Harbour Acceptance Trials - Portland Harbour, Dorset
The latest Autosub Long Range (ALR) vehicle being developed under the NERC Oceanids programme successfully completed its first live trials in the waters off Portland Harbour in Dorset, in May 2019.
ALR1500 – named for the 1500m depth it can achieve – passed its first major test in Portland Harbour with flying colours, successfully demonstrating its integration with the unified web-based Command and Control (C2) software platform that has been developed in parallel by the NOC in partnership with the Scottish Association for Marine Science.
