View the slideshow of the "AUVfest 2008: Navy Mine-hunting Robots help NOAA Explore Sunken History Expedition" autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) images. The event is a demonstration of 13 AUV systems originally developed by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) for mine hunting. As part of a collaborative effort to examine and evaluate the dual use of this technology, eight of these AUVs, and their associated sensors and systems, will also be sent on archaeological missions to shipwreck sites in Rhode Island’s Narragansett Bay.
