Last September 19, Professor John Sousa, traveled to Russia to present a lecture on the creation and use of robotic devices in marine systems of the Ural Federal University.

This event is the follow-on workshop from the  Workshop on Navigation, Guidance and Control of Underwater Vehicles (NGCUV’2012), which was held in Porto, Portugal in April 2012.


As refered in a previous post   REP14 - Atlantic  stands for Recognized Environmental Picture (REP) Atlantic 2014, and was a joint exercise of the Portuguese Navy, the NATO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE), and the University of Porto, through the Laboratório de Sistemas e Tecnologia Subaquática (LSTS). 
This exercise was conducted at the Lisbon naval base and of the coasts of Sesimbra and Sines, Portugal. The exercise was focused on evaluating, testing, and demonstrating tools and technologies for persistent operations of collaborative underwater, surface and air vehicles in mine hunting, oceanography, expeditionary hydrography, search and rescue, environmental knowledge, maritime security and harbour protection. 

Check the numbers and highlights of this exercise.


From 7 to 28 July, four naval units and ten international partners conduct collaborative experimentation off the coast of Portugal.

Multi-domain cooperative robotics could significantly improve current capabilities of Navies at sea. The Portuguese Navy and the Faculty of Engineering of University of Porto (FEUP), along with the NATO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE), based in La Spezia (Italy), are at sea off the coast of Portugal, from 7 to 28 of July 2014, to test networks of unmanned maritime vehicles (surface, underwater and aerial) and develop new solutions in the fields of underwater communications and autonomy in operational scenarios.

The experiment that gathers engeneering and biology, with researcher from Portugal, United States, Spain and Norway, lead by LSTS is already at Olhão, Algarve, for the Sunfisn Tracking Experiment.


FEUP was present within a stand at the exhibition which highlighted the autonomous vehicles developed by the LSTS, represented by João Borges de Sousa.

LSTS, together with Oceanscan MST and the Portuguese Navy gave a demonstration of AUV technologies to several Spanish institutions, at Cadiz, Spain.


Between the 13th and 17th of May, LSTS was the host of the Oceans: Challenges and Opportunities conference.


We are doing several experiments in Sesimbra, as part of the REP12 event.
