WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Laboratory for Autonomous Systems Research (LASR) at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), Washington, D.C., houses some of the most unique research facilities found in the nation used to research the effects of real-world environments on NRL-developed materials and robotic and autonomous systems. In the littoral high-bay, students taking part in the White House National Lab Day initiative were shown how scientists are able to test autonomous underwater vehicles in-lab without the need or expense to travel to field testing sites. The littoral high-bay pool is 25 feet by 45 feet, is 5.5 feet deep, and has a wave generator providing directional waves. The pool may be equipped with sand, mud, and stone to emulate various shorelines. (U.S. Naval Research Laboratory/Jamie Hartman) RELEASED
