This page describes facilities and experimental capabilities of the Ocean Systems Laboratory.
Offshore Hyball, manufactured by Hydrovision, is an important tool for research activities in the lab. Given its ability to go 300 meters underwater (500 meters umbilical), equipped with a 360 degree vision system, obstacle avoidance sonar and 3 jaw manipulator, it is a powerful instrument for exploration, tracking, and documenting the research activities of the OSL. Hyball is an adequate solution for many survey applications and as a platform to monitor autonomous missions of other vehicles.It can also be used for search and recovery of autonoumous vehicles in case of failure.
