  • Autonomous underwater vehicle AQUA EXPLORER 1000 for inspection of underwater cables

    This paper describes the outline and the summary of an autonomous underwater robot "AQUA EXPLORER 1000" (AE1000) for inspection of underwater telecommunication cables. AE1000 can find and track buried underwater cables with a cable tracking sensor, and record the view of the seafloor on a built in video cassette recorder (VCR). A high-bit-rate acoustic link for video- signal transmission is also newly developed, that enables the operator to monitor the seafloor in real-time. Five sea trials have been carried out since 1992, in which we succeeded in the continuous tracking of real underwater telecommunication tables over 2.6 kilometers. The object of the project, basic design, performance, and the results of sea trials are discussed.

    The paper deals with analysis of control performance of an autonomous underwater vehicle named AQUA EXPLORER 1000 (AE1000) for inspection of underwater telecommunication cables up to 1000 m depth, reviewing results of sea trials in autonomous tracking. The control performance of the cable tracking at 40 m water depth, consisting of descent from the surface, cable searching, cable tracking and ascent to the surface, is discussed based on the measured data. Next, the performance of spiral motion control in a limited area from the mother ship, which is an important operation for the AE1000 not to be lost during descent and ascent, is discussed by showing test results. Finally, the performance of the fuzzy controller for cable tracking control in tidal currents is discussed by use of numerical simulation.<<ETX>>

  • Development of autonomous underwater vehicle 'AQUA EXPLORER 2' for inspection of underwater cables

    A new autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) named AQUA EXPLORER 2 (AE-2) has been developed. AE-2 can trace buried underwater cables and can measure their burial depth at a low operating cost. It can be controlled through a low-bit- rate acoustic link, and can send a video signal through another high-bit-rate acoustic link. Compared with its prototype AQUA EXPLORER 1000 (AE-1000), performance has been considerably improved due to an overall revamping of the mechanical and electrical design. The continuous operating period is now six times longer for a total of 24 hours at a velocity of one knot, while its dry weight has been reduced by half to 260 kilograms. The first long pool test and the first sea trial were successfully carried out.

  • Experimental results of Autonomous Underwater Vehicle 'AQUA EXPLORER 2' for inspection of underwater cables

    This paper describes the results of sea tests of an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle named AQUA EXPLORER 2 (AE-2). The experimental results of the acoustic video-signal transmission system are also be presented. AE-2 can find and trace buried underwater cables by using a cable tracking sensor and can measure the burial depth of cables. Two sea tests were successfully performed. The purposes of these sea tests were to evaluate the performance of the vertical and horizontal motion, cable tracking, and video image transmission system. In the first sea test, AE-2 succeeded in tracking the electric cable which was laid in a calm bay. In the second sea test, AE-2 succeeded in tracking a real telecommunication cable which was laid in the Pacific Ocean. The image of the seabed can be sent in real time to a mother vessel via an acoustic data transmission system, and digitally recorded on a hard-disk on the vehicle simultaneously. Its transmission speed is 16-32 Kbits/sec and it can transmit two pictures of 160 by 120 pixels per second.

  • Optimization of configuration of autonomous underwater vehicle for inspection of underwater cables

    Deals with the configuration of autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) for inspection of underwater cables considering low hydrodynamic drag, sensor alignment, collision avoidance manoeuvre, turning manoeuvre and rolling motion. The AUV consists of a fuselage of body of revolution with low hydrodynamic drag, fore and aft horizontal wings, upper and lower vertical tails and a pair of horizontal thrusters at both sides of the aft horizontal wings. The shape of the forward horizontal wing and that of the rear horizontal wing can be determined by use of a nonlinear optimization method under the constraints of magnetic sensor alignment for cable tracking, dynamic stability in the vertical plane and the performance of the collision avoidance manoeuvre. The performance of the turning manoeuvre and rolling motion are attributed to thrust force difference between a pair of thrusters at both sides of the rear horizontal wing, because the shapes of the upper and lower vertical tails can be designed from the viewpoint of the dynamic stability in horizontal plane.

  • Calculation of dynamic motions and tensions in towed underwater cables

    A matrix method for mooring system analysis is extended to address the dynamic response of towed underwater systems. Key tools are equivalent linearization and small perturbation theory, and a pitching towfish model. Two examples of application of the technique are provided. The first studies a fundamental limitation to constrained passive heave compensation, while the second concerns the use of floated tethers as a means for dynamic decoupling.<<ETX>>

The problem of acoustic images processing for detection of communication lines on a sea- bottom and underwater robot control task are solved. Real cable recognition results and pipeline tracking modeling experiments are discussed.
