Blanco, Max (2009) Proposal for an AUV refuel station In OCEANS 2009 , MTS / IEEE Biloxi - Marine Technology for Our Future: Global and Local Challenges. Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers..

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


A proposal for a buoy station for AUV refuel is described and
depicted. The buoy is to be funded and manufactured before July 2010,
when it is to see service in the Azores as part of FREESUBNET week, a
public outreach activity of EC contract number MCRTN-036186. The
design calls for a low-maintenance permanent installation. The buoy
will be accessible to the public upon prior written permission. A
preliminary bill of materials is listed, as well as shipboard
requirements and the like.
