Development of Terrain-Referenced and Geomagnetic Navigation Techniques for Enhanced Navigation Performance of Unmanned Underwater Vehicles

By |

The objective of the current project is the development and implementation of methods of geophysical navigation (GN) for submarines or unmanned underwater vehicles (UUV) capable of exploiting efficiently different types of geophysical information to enable precise long-term and/or long-range navigation without the need to rely on external signals supplied by artificial beacons. The proposed research

Opening the Deep Sea Frontier

By |

The MEDUSA DEEP SEA project aims at affording national science and technology stakeholders a system of autonomous cooperative vehicles capable of carrying operations at water depths of up to 3,000 m in remote oceanic areas, with light logistic requirements. The system will support decision-making processes related to marine management and conservation policies in the context
