A Marinha Portuguesa, juntamente com outras unidades da NATO, participaram até esta semana no exercício “Mare Aperto – Italian Minex 17” que decorreu na Sardenha. Durante este exercício de desminagem, o Destacamento de Mergulhadores Sapadores Nº 3 – Mine Warfare, com ao auxílio de veículos autónomos subaquáticos, duas minas reais da II Guerra Mundial na zona de exercício.

LSTS has collaborated with MBARI on several occasions, including the 2013 CANON initiative, providing AUV´s, UAV´s and exchanging experiences in command and control of autonomous vehicles.

This spring MBARI is set out to take CANON another step further, deploying LRAUV´s (long-range autonomous underwater vehicles), one of which is equipped with third-generation Environmental Sample Processor (3G ESP) to collect environmental DNA. Hopefully this will help provide a better pictures of the environmental shifts in the Monterey Bay.
