ARIES is now on display at Hidden History: Untold Stories of the Naval Postgraduate School exhibit at the Monterey Maritime Museum http://www.montereyhistory.org/ in Monterey California. The museum just opened an exhibit highlighting the Naval Postgraduate Schools accomplishments over the last 100 years. ARIES is part of this exhibit and can be seen just inside the main entrance of the museum.
ARIES was built by the CAVR (formally Center for AUV research) 1999. It has performed missions all over the world testing advanced control algorithms, communication paradigms and new sonar technologies. Although ARIES is on display at a museum it is still active and can be deployed if the platform is needed.
