The mAUV (modular Autonomous Underwater Vehicle) was on a mission in the Seakeeping and Manoeuvring Basin.
First video shows mAUV inspecting a sea mine. Its manoeuvers around the mine are a demonstration of the six Degrees of Freedom control capabilities of the vessel. Second video shows mAUV performing a 'lawn mower' pattern, commonly used in survey operations. With its six degrees of freedom control capabilities the vehicle can make small radius turns, even at very low speed.
