Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Introduction

Being an avid scuba diver, I’ve wanted to build a sonar — Since a simple side scan┬ásonar just won’t do, I have set my sights on a Synthetic Aperture Sonar. The trick? without a boat, I need to have some sort of stable platform to mount the sonar — And hence my Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) project.

I’ve been thinking about and designing this project for quite some time, but have been designing in earnest as of late.┬áThis section is dedicated to the design and construction of my AUV.

As with most of my hobby projects, having a running AUV goal isn’t necessarily the end goal due to time and resource constraints. Rather, I enjoy the journey of designing and building things — If I learn a lot, the project has been a success in my eyes.
