Unmanned Undersea Vehicles (UUVs) have the potential to explore and monitor oceans in unprecedented ways, but their present batteries only allow them to operate for days at a time. A team of students designed and built a gasoline-hybrid recharging system for a Remus 600 UUV to extend its operating time from three days to four weeks. To facilitate the understanding, operation, and copying of the unit by the project sponsor, MIT Lincoln Laboratory, a thorough inventory of components was taken and explained according to subsystem, including fuel system, air snorkel system, engine system, electronics system, and cooling plumbing
