Abstract

The Society for Industrial & Applied Mathematics (SIAM) student chapter at ERAU has been working on the design, construction and testing of three highly integrated and streamlined autonomous underwater vehicles, called Eco-Dolphins. The multidisciplinary team provides hands on research experience to members through Analysis, Computation and Experimentation (ACE). The Leverage lab is used to conduct preliminary research on electrical and mechanical systems. The engineering composites lab is utilized for the fabrication of Eco-Dolphins. Underwater experiments are conducted in the Universities Nonlinear Wave lab.

The Blue Eco-Dolphin’s manufacturing phase will be completed by the summer of 2014, for testing in littoral waters, of central Florida. The three sequential (yellow, blue, and red) vehicles allow for accurate navigation data to be sent, a unique buoy network. The combined fleet shall cooperatively fulfill multitask missions, through advanced surveillance and environmental monitoring. The Eco-Dolphins promise will be a unique, highly optimized and a competitive underwater vehicle fleet.
