Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) Development


UIdaho U-571 will design a submarine for the AUVSI competition in July that is efficient in its structural layout, lightweight, and allows easy access to the electrical components.

Team Impact is sponsored by NAVSEA and is mentored by Jay McCormack. The design team consists of five seniors from the University of Idaho: Silas Van Natter (Mechanical Engineering), Kurran Kelly (Mechanical Engineering), Brandon Bakken (Mechanical Engineering), Josh Van Patten (Mechanical Engineering), and Brandt Pedrow (Mechanical Engineering).
