Autonomous Maritime Systems, IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society Technology Committee on


The technology of AMS vehicles includes flight, surface and subsurface assemblies that are comprised of various sub-systems and instruments. These include flight systems, navigation components, acoustics, propulsion systems, actuators, batteries, vision systems and computational assets for controls as well as data analysis with the outcome of data products. These various technologies are also implemented in a variety of ways beyond single purpose systems with vertical and horizontal multi-asset deployments working in an integrated fashion. An AMS implementation is frequently used in military applications for security purposes, such as harbors and so forth as well as for battle space preparations. Some systems are used in battle also. Other applications include marine science of all types such as to mid-water biology, mapping, chemical sensing, sampling and persistence applications. Industry is expanding rapidly into AMS vehicles with particular attention to oil field inspection and recently intervention tasks. The committee is active in a variety of ways with a focus on a single track symposium held every other year and rotated around the globe in service to our international membership. Along with these meetings the committee supports Special Issues of the OES Journal of Ocean Engineering. The committee is also playing a key role in AMS education by sponsoring student poster competitions for Masters and PhD students as well as supporting and judging at AMS competitions around the world, with OES frequently taking the top spot as the Sponsor.
