Boston Engineering: GhostSwimmer, A Biometric Robot Fish
The Boston Engineering SCOPE project is part of a Phase I Small Business Technology Transfer (SBTR) grant from the Office of Naval Research that is held jointly by Olin College and Boston Engineering. The SCOPE team designed a biometric robot modeled after the tuna fish. The GhostSwimmer is a highly efficient and maneuverable unmanned undersea vehicle developed for a wide variety of missions. The Olin team was primarily responsible for the maneuverability and sensor portions of the robot; Boston Engineering is designing the propulsion system.
