Namely, the AUV will be deployed and recovered by the work boat.


A safety boat will also be in attendance at all times to warn and re-direct craft in the vicinity to keep clear of the working area.

In addition, MPA Singapore warned that when near the working  area, mariners are reminded to:

  • Keep well clear and not to enter the working area;
  • Maintain a proper lookout;
  • Proceed at a safe speed and navigate with caution;
  • Maintain a listening watch on VHF Channel 12 (East Control);
  • Communicate with East Control on VHF Channel 12 for assistance, if required.
