  • Montana, Josep Miquel Jornet (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Sea Grant College Program, 2008-05)
    AUVNetSim is a simulation library for testing acoustic networking algorithms. It is written in Python and makes extensive use of the SimPy discrete event simulation package. AUVNetSim is interesting for both end users and ...
  • Cox, Robert; Leeb, Steven B. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Sea Grant College Program, 2009)
    Work on the AUV NILM project has proceeded along two main fronts: (1) NILM System Development; (2) Diagnostics for Li-Ion Batteries
  • Pederson, Judith; Fertig, Benjamin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Sea Grant College Program, 2004)
    This white paper focuses on the regional component of ballast water management and specifically addresses concerns in the Gulf of St. Lawrence and Gulf of Maine. It summarizes vessel traffic and ballast water exchange in ...
  • Leeb, Steven B.; Kirtley, James L., Jr. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Sea Grant College Program, 2011-04)
    Facilities managers for industrial and commercial sites want to develop detailed electrical consumption profiles of their electrical and electromechanical loads, including expensive physical plant for heating, ventilation, ...
  • Eskesen, Justin; Owens, Dylan; Soroka, Michael; Morash, Jim; Hover, Franz S.; Chryssostomidis, Chryssostomos (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Sea Grant College Program, 2009)
    The Odyssey IV class AUV was designed to fill the evolving needs of research and industry for a deep rated (6000 meter) vehicle, which is capable of both efficient cruising and precise hovering. This AUV is powerful enough ...
  • Prempraneerach, P.; Kirtley, James L., Jr.; Chryssostomidis, Chryssostomos; Triantafyllou, Michael S.; Karniadakis, George E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Sea Grant College Program, 2008)
    We present a detailed model of the integrated power system coupled to hydrodynamics that allows us to study global sensitivities in the All-Electric Ship. A novel element of our formulation is the stochastic modeling of ...
  • Fernandez, Vicente Ignacio; Hou, Stephen M.; Hover, Franz S.; Lang, Jeffrey H.; Triantafyllou, Michael S. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Sea Grant College Program, 2009-07)
    A novel sensory system is being developed for AUVs to augment current sensory systems for navigation and operation in difficult environments. These environments are frequently cluttered and murky with substantial flow from ...
  • Cooke, Chathan M.; Chalfant, Julie; Chryssostomidis, Chryssostomos (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Sea Grant College Program, 2012-12)

    The performance of important electrical loads on mission critical systems like warships or off-shore platforms is often tracked by dedicated monitoring equipment. Individual monitoring of each load is expensive and risky. ...
  • Dassuncao, Clifton (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Sea Grant College Program, 2008-12)
    The globalization of consumer goods and natural resources has led to an unintentional increase in exchanges of native biota (Bright 1999, Barbier and Shogren 2004, Perrings et al. 2005). Organisms that were once constrained ...
  • Prempraneerach, P.; Foo, J.; Triantafyllou, Michael S.; Chryssostomidis, Chryssostomos; Karniadakis, George E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Sea Grant College Program, 2008)
    Sensitivity analysis results are useful both for the early design stage – where the parametric space can be substantially reduced – but also in operating conditions, e.g. of the future electric ship, resulting in reduced ...
  • Pederson, Judith (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Sea Grant College Program, 2009-02)
