The Story of Autosub
Dynamics of Shelf Seas Fronts - The Irish Sea
Autosub operations were from MV Terschelling in the Irish Sea off the N. Wales coast with a total AUV mission track of 751 km.
For this campaign Autosub 3, the sister vehicle to Autosub 2, was fitted with a turbulence probe on its nose, which was angled up by 0.7˚ with reference to the inertial navigation system so that it was near horizontal when in flight. As you can see by the image, not all recoveries have the desirable equal lengths on the recovery lines!
