In September of 1998, a collaborative effort between the Institute for Marine Dynamics (IMD) of the National Research Council of Canada and the Ocean Engineering Research Centre of Memorial University of Newfoundland began to design a streamlined AUV to serve as a testbed for IMD and graduate level research. This AUV, the C-SCOUT, is expected to serve as a test-bed to assist in the development of future control and propulsion systems, the testing of vehicle components, and as a general research and development tool for years to come. Future versions of C-SCOUT can be configured for a wide variety of missions including search and survey, under ice operations, iceberg profiling, oceanographic sampling, and mine detection and countermeasures.
