Opening up new horizons under water with Fraunhofer
Our seas and oceans offer diverse economic opportunities, such as transportation, energy generation and a valuable source of renewable resources. With their wide range of expertise, Fraunhofer researchers are exploring the underwater world to help bring forward a more sustainable future.
The challenges of subsea technologies can only be met by combining various skills. Cooperation in different fields is essential for the development and implementation of new technological solutions in all kinds of marine environments – from shallow water to the deep sea. Therefore, Fraunhofer institutes have bundled their know-how to be able to develop innovative technologies such as subsea vehicles, monitoring stations for aquaculture facilities or detection systems for explosives.
