Currently in development by the third generation of AUVIC members.

Polaris – The North Star

Polaris was developed for the 2018 Robosub competition and further improved for the 2019 competition. It was the pinnicle of the second generational AUVIC members – which boasted a member count of over two dozen engineering and computer science students – who had developed a passion for marine engineering and underwater robotics.

Nautilus – The Fogotten One

Not much is recorded about Nautlius, however it is known that Nautilius pushed the envelope on mechanical design. The second generation of members who would design Polaris had taken this failure and learned much about underwater dynamics.

Red Herring

The AUV used in the 2016 competition. Red Herring was the smallest AUV designed by AUVIC. Built for maunverability and data collection, Red Herring introduced the second generation to RoboSub and underwater robotics.

2016 AUV – Red Herring


Aerius was designed by the first generation of AUVIC members. It came in second place at Robosub 2009.
