    Hi there!

    Old question we had from the other forum: quick question, if we have passed the demonstrate AUV launch and recovery test, would we be allowed to have tethered practice with the AUV direct to shore provided our tether is long enough? This would allow for more real-time feedback and tuning of the tasks without battling the datalink.

      Hello bumblebee. We do not intend to allow shore-based, tethered operation of the AUV. All AUV operations must be conducted from the surface platform as described in the published rules.

      The nature of the underwater challenge means that it can not be placed near to the shore. This, combined with local environmental conditions and other (manned and unmanned) craft in the area presents a safety concern. The RoboNation team is exploring options to enable AUV testing.

        During our call with leadership way back when we were told there'd be details about the ring challenge in March. Are those details coming out soon?
