AUVs as named, are supposed to be autonomous, but in reality many operators choose to supervise them from a support vessel, particularly in the field of ocean science.

The GIB system, due to its long range radio link, offers a real-time supervision of the vehicle even if the vessel is far away, conducting another mission task.

ACSA's specific algorithms allow a pseudo-tracking (in fact a merge between the mission plan and distance measurements) using only one GIB buoy. This revolutionary technique also known as "Surface Synthetic Long Base Line" is perfectly suited to AUV supervision.
