My Writings. My Thoughts.
Maritime technologies will play a crucial economic and scientific role in the future, whereas the inspection and exploration of the deep see is the pivotal question.With the general rise in resource material procurement costs the attractiveness of deep sea deposits will increase. The development of these new fields requires surveying (exploration) and their operation requires a regular monitoring (inspection). The same is true for resource transmission pipelines and submarine cables for energy and information. Exploring the biota and geological structures of the oceans, particularly with regard to the climate changes on earth, there is a need of an autonomous underwater vehicles suitable for the deep sea.
