Apparatuses, systems, and methods for the deployment of a plurality of autonomous underwater seismic vehicles (AUVs) on or near the seabed based on acoustic communications with an underwater vehicle, such as a remotely operated vehicle. In an embodiment, the underwater vehicle is lowered from a surface vessel along with a subsea station with a plurality of AUVs. The AUVs are configured to acoustically communicate with the underwater vehicle or a second surface vessel for deployment and retrieval operations. The underwater vehicle and/or second surface ve...


1. A method for the deployment of a plurality of seismic nodes on or near the seabed, comprising loading a first plurality of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) in an underwater vehicle on a first surface vessel, wherein each AUV comprises one or more seismic sensors and a propulsion system;lowering the underwater vehicle from the first surface vessel into a body of water;towing the underwater vehicle by the first surface vessel;launching the first plurality of AUVs from the underwater vehicle based on communications from the underwater vehicle as it ...
