Gozo ICEX data AUV ICEX Wreck from AUV

ICEX - Cal poly

Zoë Wood

The ICEX Program is a collaborative effort between California Polytechnic State University, Harvey Mudd College and the University of Malta. ICEX is an opportunity for students to apply their technical knowledge in an international context and to increase global citizenship across campus.

The 2016-18 program is a new project focused on Intelligent Shipwreck Mapping with AUVs with the Cal Poly component being focused on the visualization aspects of the mapping project.

Our discovery of a rare WW2 biplane, a Fairy Swordfish, is briefly described here

Link to some of the meshes of the shipwrecks reconstructed from our work.

The prior project (2011-2013) the program focused on deploying ROVs into ancient Maltese and Sicilian cisterns (underground water storage systems) and marine caves so that sonar and video data could be used to construct maps and visualizations.
