17th Annual International RoboSub Competition

August 4, 2014 - via AUVSI

17th Annual International RoboSub Competition
July 28 - August 3, 2014
SSC Pacific TRANSDEC, San Diego, CA 


Co-sponsored by the U.S. Office of Naval Research (ONR), the goal of this competition is to advance the development of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) by challenging a new generation of engineers to perform realistic missions in an underwater environment.  The event also serves to foster ties between young engineers and the organizations developing AUV technologies. 

The Annual RoboSub Competition is an important key to keeping young engineers excited about careers in science, technology, engineering, and math and has been tremendously successful in recruiting students into the high-tech field of maritime robotics.
