Exploring and making sustainable use of the world's oceans is one of the greatest challenges of our time. Scientists at Fraunhofer are developing the technologies needed to meet this challenge. The spectrum ranges from underwater vehicles and unmanned shipping to system technologies and visual computing, simulation and measurement technologies, all the way to finding uses for algae and aquacultures.
The efficient autonomous navigation carrier platform DEDAVE
DEDAVE is in the shape similar to the well-known space shuttles. It can be used for underwater research applications, planning the relocation of submarine cables and inspecting them during operation, coast guard activities, deep-sea mining, the deep-sea oil and gas industry.
