Previously at MIT the development of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) and Autonomous Surface Craft (ASCs) were pursued independently. This paper describes the effort to combine AUV and ASC research into a streamlined standard. The final ASC and AUV configurations incorporating AUV- based technologies are described and the results of field tests are presented. The paper concludes with an assessment of the benefits and limitations of this approach.
