Dec 3 – Last mission

We ran our last mission mission today. In addition, we also tested automated profiling, and ran automated profiling missions. Everything went smoothly and we are one step closer to running complete science missions (including profiling) autonomously in addition to bathymetry missions.

Kristof, Chris, Rachel and Vicky as the bot is pulled out for the last time.

We also managed to do a reasonable amount of robot disassembly and packing work today.

The syntactic foam is packed into yellow boxes that will be sling loaded by helicopters and flown to McMurdo tomorrow.
