The “Recognized Environmental Picture Atlantic” Exercise (REP) is returning for its 10th edition, with Sesimbra and Troia Peninsula as the backdrop this year. Bringing together dozens of autonomous underwater, surface and air vehicles for coastal operations, the annual event will soon take place again, this time from 11th to 27th September 2019. REP is one of the major European experimentation exercises for Maritime Unmanned Systems (MUS) and is jointly organized by the Portuguese Navy, the Laboratório de Sistemas e Tecnologia Subaquática (LSTS) of the University of Porto and the NATO STO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation.

There’s more to a global network than satellite links, and yet sat-linked remote operations experts can heap huge scientific and technological gains on the world. That’s what’s happening in the background — a smallish network of the best scientists from around the world are orchestrating the communications and robotics that’ll yield groundbreaking achievement in the networked use of autonomous underwater vehicles, or AUVs.

The ocean is too large to observe with conventional means. SOI recognizes that in order to make meaningful advances there must be more agile, resilient, and robust platforms. Robots and AI can greatly improve coverage and cost-efficiency for select ocean observations by reducing risk, and facilitating high resolution spatially distributed surveys of dynamic marine processes, as illustrated by the projects discussed in this section.

During the 6th and 7th of June, the final FIRE-RS demo took place in Toulouse, hosted by the LAAS partner. This demo, contrary to the previous one, was focused on engaging the academic community working and developing UAV systems. To this effect the demo was made part of the 6th Drone Garden Workshop and served to dive into the technical details of each partners developments as well as presenting the results from demos 1 & 2
