The Cambridge Autonomous Underwater Vehicle

A team from Cambridge designed and built an autonomous underwater vehicle for an annual Europe-wide competition. The AUVs will be tested by an underwater assault course that must be completed with no communication to or from the surface.
Conclusion

During the past two years, we have managed to build a solid base for the development of our AUV and gained a large amount of experience in the design process. Our long-term design goals are starting to be realized, and hopefully one day, we'll have a vehicle capable of withstanding Arctic conditions. Until then, we have an AUV that is a strong competitor in the SAUC-E competition that hopefully will match or better the results of previous years.

Acknowledgements

The Cambridge AUV team would like to say a massive thank you to our sponsors Schlumberger and Tritech International for their continued support. Without donations from companies such as these, many extra-curricular student-run projects, such as CAUV, wouldn't be possible.

Andy Pritchard is the project manager of the Cambridge AUV Project, currently in his final year of the Computer Science Tripos at the University of Cambridge. He has been a member of the CAUV team for the past two and a half years.

One Click, Universal Protection: Implementing Centralized Security Policies on Linux Systems

As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
