ADRS

This project describes the design and projected development of an Automated Deployment and Retrieval System (ADRS) for towed bodies from a surface vessel (manned mother-ship or USV) while operating in high sea states. The ADRS will support varying sizes of towed bodies and can be customized to different host platforms of varying sizes. Simulation and analysis results are presented which support high confidence in the successful construction of the system in a Phase II project.
