Who We Are
At the Oceanographic Systems Lab (OSL), a team of engineers, technicians and staff define Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUVs) concepts and build them into reality.
History of OSL
Just over a decade ago, OSL started off with a small 100 meter depth rated two person portable vehicle. Now our team designs larger more powerful vehicles designed to visit depths up to 6000 meters.
What We Do
The Oceanographic Systems Lab (OSL) is part of the Applied Ocean Physics & Engineering Department at WHOI. OSL is made up of a talented group of lab members, who make significant contributions to the growth of the marine robotics field by applying mechanical and electronic designs to create innovative autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs). These remotely operated vehicles are able to have capabilities such as signal processing, underwater acoustics, embedded data acquisition, mapping systems and more digital electronics. The designs created by the lab are used to carry out a range of missions relating to scientific discoveries and defense.
REMUS Developers & Operators
Remote Environmental Monitoring UnitS (REMUS Vehicles), are low-cost autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) designed to operate with a laptop.
