COVER
Rear Adm. Tim Gallaudet, oceanographer of the U.S. Navy, poses for a photo shortly after looking over the REMUS 6000, an AUV. AUVs are a critical component to assist in collecting information from more than 250,000 mi. of physical battlespace so that Naval and Joint commanders can make better decisions faster than the adversary.
