Congratulations Professor!

MSEAS is completing a real-time uncertainty forecasting exercise for a Global Positioning System (GPS) for underwater assets

The POSYDON Sea Exercise 2017 occurs in the Middle Atlantic – New York Bight Region for the first two weeks of February 2017. In collaboration with the POINT team, our objectives are to utilize the MIT MSEAS system to: (i) forecast the probability of high-resolution ocean fields using our ESSE methodology; (ii) transfer the corresponding distribution of the sound speed field to three-dimensional underwater sound propagation uncertainties; (iii) collect sufficient data to evaluate the accuracy of the Bayesian tomographic inversion and of its posterior estimates of range between transducers and sound velocity profiles (SVPs). Please visit the POSYDON-POINT webpage for more information.

Chinmay wins SIAM Student Travel Award

Chinmay Kulkarni, a second year graduate student, has been selected to receive a SIAM Student Travel Award to attend the SIAM Conference on Applications of Dynamical Systems (DS17), to be held from May 21 to 25, 2017, at the Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort in Snowbird, Utah, USA.

Deepak to present at MechE Research Exhibition on Sept. 18

PhD student, Deepak Subramani, will present a poster on “Optimal Path Planning in Dynamic Environments” at the Mechanical Engineering Research Exhibition 2015 (MERE ’15) to be held on Sept 18, 2015 at Walker Memorial.

Real Time Sea Exercise Conducted in Buzzards Bay

Real-time exercises were completed in the Buzzards Bay to test at sea time-optimal autonomy methods and software developed by MSEAS for AUVs. The exercises were completed in collaboration with colleagues from WHOI (Glen Gawarkiewicz and Ben Allen) and Lincoln Lab (Joe Edwards and Kristen Railey). More details and real time modeling outputs are available here.

MSEAS group awarded seed funding for high performance computing

The Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center (MGHPCC) has awarded $600,000 in seed grants to seven multi-university teams on issues ranging from the ecosystem off the New England coast to medical imaging to the speed of computing itself. The MGHPCC is designed to promote research collaboration among the participating universities (Boston University, Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Northeastern University and the University of Massachusetts) through high-performance computing, a pillar of all scientific inquiry today. The seed grant program is intended to accelerate the MGHPCC’s mission of computational collaboration.

From the MGHPCC web site: “To complement the forthcoming deployment of a state-of-the-art underwater observation platform, part of the NSF-sponsored Ocean Observatories initiative, John Marshall (MIT), Pierre Lermusiaux (MIT), Amala Mahadevan (WHOI) and Amit Tandon (UMass Dartmouth) will create models to provide insights into the turbulent mixing that regulates nutrient cycle and ocean ecosystem dynamics off the New England coast.”
