A training session to some researchers and operators of the RAWFIE consortium took place from 5th to 7th of September 2017, at the Navy Base of Skaramagkas, near Athens, Greece. The training session was conducted by a multidisciplinary team of INESC TEC and covered a set of technical topics, including USVs handling, deployment, operation, recovery and maintenance. Additionally, a demonstration of the FLEXUS USVs capabilities was performed using several vehicles in a typical outdoor environment. Hands-on experience was also provided to the attendees.
Further to training, the FLEXUS solution was successfully integrated in the testbed where the USVs will execute missions (experiments) to collect data for researchers in the near future.
