Project Motivation
 The development of industry
standards for AUV interfaces,
similar to the API standards for
ROVs, will:
– Lead to compatible system
designs by AUV vendors and
field hardware manufacturers,
and
– Enable safer, more efficient and
cost effective operations of
subsea fields.
Future capabilities and benefits of AUVs will be substantially enhanced
through the use of standardized interfaces with subsea facilities

Project Objectives
 Project Objective:
– Identify subsea interfaces which should
be standardized for AUVs
– Develop recommendations and
preliminary drafts of interface standards
– Submit to API SC17

Preliminary List of AUV Interfaces
for Standardization
• Docking
• Power / Battery Charging
• Communications / Data Transfer
• Mechanical Intervention
Standardization Must Consider Both Greenfield and Brownfield Applications

Key Results and Next Steps
 Summary of Results:
– Draft RP, formatted as a “Stand Alone”
document following format of API RP 17H
– Key Sections include:
• Sect. 4.0: AUV Interface Philosophy
and Functional Requirements
• Sect. 7.0: AUV Navigational
Requirements for Interfaces and
Subsea Systems
• Sect. 12.0: AUV Interfaces
 Next Steps:
– Deliver DeepStar report to API upon
completion of DeepStar reveiws
