Successful deployment of the Autonomous Underwater Explorer (AUE).
We just finished our third cruise with the 3dPIV system. We were planning on doing our tests up near Monterey, CA, but due to bad weather, we decided to stay around the Channel Islands. Despite the conditions, the 3dPIV operated reliably and we were able to get good data. Pictures of this cruise have been added to the 3dPIV page.
We just finished our second cruise with the 3dPIV system. The goal of this short cruise was to test the 3dPIV and to get practice launching and retrieving the system. Based on how well this cruise goes, we can do some more fine tuning to the system so that everything operates smoothly on the long cruise in September. Pictures of this cruise have been added to the 3dPIV page.
