D2CAF by having MUSCLE and Black CAT work together. MUSCLE has an acoustic Doppler current profiler that detects current direction and velocity, and can reprogram its search patterns to account for currents. Black CAT, which hosts a version of D2CAF and is used for reacquisition, is equipped with a Teledyne Blueview 900 forward-looking sonar (FLS), optical camera, Blueview 2.25MHz multi-beam 3D sonar, and ARIS camera.  CMRE also has a pair of Konsgberg Hydroid REMUS 100 vehicles with sidescan sonar and multi-beam echosounder (MBES) for reacquisition, and an IQUA Robotics SPARUS UUV with ARIS for

market and seeing rapid evolution.New Approaches to ROVsThe most obvious element of change in current practice is to remove the ship. A logical first move is to replace a large expensive crewed ship with an USV. This approach has been demonstrated by several players. In a defense-focused demonstration Teledyne Seabotix ROVs were operated from Marine Advanced Research WAM-V USVs. In commercial practice, SAAB ROVs have been supported by L3 ASV C-worker USVs. In these configurations the objective is primarily inspection. An operator ashore, connected via radio or satellite telemetry, can use the combined

also in the context of drilling optimization, allowing for faster rig moves with simplified connect/disconnect operations from pre-laid mooring lines. It was designed using the proven platform of sister company SRP’s Rocksteady mooring connector, with a control system developed in conjunction with Teledyne Marine. The advanced control system uses high-fidelity acoustic modems, and implements domain key authorization, unique addressing, network relay and frequency hopping techniques, ensuring the mooring connectors are not affected by obstructions or noise.  These features eliminate the possibility
