Demonstration day

As in previous years, LSTS and the Portuguese Navy are once again co-organizing REP16 exercise. This year, among the participants are CMRE, the Belgian Navy, SPAWAR and Oceanscan-OMT. Observing this exercise will be members from the Naval Undersea Warfare Center, NASA and JPI Oceans.

Broadening the Scope

With the 3rd day of REP the stage was set for a more ambitious exercise bringing into the fold AUVs, UAVs and ASVs. The E5 (ASV + UAV has communication relays for AUV) exercise began its first trials on open waters on the outside of Sesimbra harbor. A large fraction of the operational team was allocated to this effort since it required 3 operation locations.
