The Unidad de Tecnología Marina (UTM) acquired in 2010, due to the wide scientific requirement to obtain high quality images of the seafloor, a couple of AUV´s for shallow waters applications with the aim to support marine research operations in coastal waters. The vehicles has been used as a routine science vehicle but also for technical development. During these years a valuable experience has been gained for future operation on either, coastal and open waters with new and more performant platforms.
