On the week 10 to 15 November a team of four people from LSTS went to Funchal (Madeira) for a demonstration of the current operational capabilities. This initiative was brought with the aim of presenting the underwater robotic vehicles and theirs potentiality in surveying and data collection in port and coastal environments.
October 7th through the 18th, researchers from LSTS visited MBARI to participate in CANON (http://www.mbari.org/canon/default.htm) field experiments. Significantly this involved an LSTS Xtreme 2 AUV and associated communication gear being deployed in near shore waters in Monterey Bay along with other assets including ships and AUVs from MBARI.
Experiment held in the Mar Menor lagoon area, near Cartagena, Spain to understand the capacity of the lagoon as a biological buffer and to understand the exchange of water between the Mediterranean Sea and the lagoon.
