Abstract: Autonomous systems can both augment traditional manned observing systems, as well as serve a unique role not possible with traditional platforms. At the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), autonomous systems are in use for numerous applications in both the Great Lakes and marine environment, including fisheries applications. Starting in 2017, NOAA began efforts to systematically catalog all research and development (R&D) projects in the agency in the NOAA R&D Database (NRDD). Using the NRDD, we examine where and how unmanned systems are in use at NOAA in contrast to traditional platforms, including ship-based measurements.
