New features in the TethysDash system often take initial shape in an experimental fashion. This page is intended to give a brief overview and status of any such current cases. As always, please get in touch if you have any questions.

TethysL Support

As part of the TethysL effort, we have recently (March 2022) started adjustments in the TethysDash system (both backend and frontend) to allow operators to select and schedule missions that have been written in TethysL.


From the operator's point of view, other than noticing additional files (with file name extension .tl) under the mission script selection dropdown in the Mission tab, there are no other changes at all in terms of the subsequent preparation and scheduling.



  • DashUI 4.9.6: Any available TethysL mission files are now also included when selecting a mission for scheduling.

  • Backend 4.8.7: The API has been expanded to describe TethysL mission scripts as needed for the corresponding Dash UI functionality, which is mainly in terms of providing details about all mission parameters (name, default value, units), including those of any inserted missions or aggregates.

  • Execution on the vehicle: The LRAUV software has been enhanced to support execution of missions originally written in TethysL. Complete end-to-end exercises have been satisfactory but still under testing.
