Description: The Remus (Remote Environmental Measuring UnitS) is a family of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) developed by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and Hydroid to operate at 100 to 6,000 meters in depth. The AUVs can be equipped with a variety of payloads and sensors the meet the customer's requirements in both oceanic and shallow waters. The Remus family is suitable for the following applications: Hydrographic surveys; Mine counter measure (MCM) operations; Harbor security operations; Environmental monitoring; Debris field mapping; Search and salvage operations; Fishery operations; and Scientific sampling and mapping.

The Remus 6000 has been designed for operations ranging from 25 meters to a maximum of 6,000 meters in depth. Leverages the same proven software and electronic sub-systems found in the Remus 100 AUV. The underwater vehicle can accommodate a wide range of sensors and payloads. A Launch and Recovery System (LARS) was designed for Remus 6000 to be installed off the stern of a ship for shipboard operations. So far, the LARS has completed around 1,000 launch and recovery cycles at sea. Powered by an 11 kw-hr lithium ion rechargeable battery the Remus 600 mission endurance depends on vehicle's speed and payload's power consumption but, typically, is set to 22 hours. Remus 6000 is the result of a cooperative program involving the Naval Oceanographic Office, the Office of Naval Research, and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI).
