This video describes the positive impact engineers can have on our world. The video highlights the five engineering departments at the USNA.

Babel_Fish_UUV_small.jpgTechnical Support Department: Babelfish UUV Pitch Test with Internal Telemetry

WRC TSD designed an Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) being put into a stressful maneuver to test its frame and control systems, while also showing internal telemetry data. These tests and development help us to better support future Midshipmen projects.

SURF_UUV_and_USV_small.jpgTechnical Support Department: SURF USV and UUV Demo

WRC TSD designed both an Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) and an Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV). This is a demo of the vehicles being driven in the Hopper Hall SURF pool. The USV will be used in future WRC courses and projects, while the UUV was developed to give staff further knowledge in order to help Midshipmen on future projects.

SURF_3D_Print_small.jpgTechnical Support Department: SURF USV 3D Print

WRC TSD 3D printing a concept hull for the WRC Departments USV (Unmanned Surface Vehicle). This hull will be used to test the feasibility of the design in water. The vehicle is being designed to be used in WRC courses utilizing the SURF pool as well as Faculty/Staff research projects.
