Laboratory for Autonomous Systems Research Celebrates 10-Year Anniversary
January 9, 2023
Inspired by the pectoral fins of reef fish, particularly the bird wrasse, researchers at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) have integrated artificial pectoral fins into a man-portable, autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) known as the Wrasse-inspired Agile Near-shore Deformable-fin Automaton, or WANDA. Much of the development and testing of the WANDA platforms takes place in NRL’s Laboratory for Autonomous Systems Research (LASR) — a multi-environment facility that can emulate tropical, desert, and littoral conditions on-site. Four side-mounted fins, two forward and two aft, provide all the propulsion and control necessary for the vehicle. WANDA can perform low-speed maneuvers including forward and vertical translation, turn-in-place rotation, and station keeping in the presence of waves.
