Yesterday in the morning we had the opportunity to test the new SEATRAC modems manufactured by Blueprint Subsea and developed with our friends and partners from the University of New Castle. At a first look the modems & USBL worked quite well and the results seem to be good. This will be further analysed in more detail by post-processing the data acquired. These trials were conducted in the scope of the CADDY project.
In the afternoon we launched the vehicles again in the water for tests in the scope of the MORPH project. We tested the latest upgrades to the formation control of the lower segment of the formation. it worked pretty well including the formation transformations resulting from applying the “MORPH formation roll” operator.
