AUV finds Australian WWI AE1 Submarine

The Australian Navy just announced that it found the WWI submarine AE1 just south of the Duke of York Islands at a depth of 1000m. A Fugro Echo Surveyor 5 AUV was used with a multi-beam echosounder to locate the vessel, followed up with AUV video and drop camera operations.

The sub went missing in September 1914 with 35 crew members on board.
