Abstract
This paper describes the Multilevel Autonomy Robot Telesupervision Architecture (MARTA), an architecture for supervisory control of a heterogeneous eet of net- worked unmanned autonomous aquatic surface vessels carrying a payload of environmental science sensors. This architecture allows a land-based human scientist to eectively supervise data gathering by multiple robotic assets that implement a web of widely dispersed mobile sensors for in situ study of physical, chemical or bio- logical processes in water or in the water/atmosphere interface
