Smooth sailing with autonomous survey vessels

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 3 ottobre 2022

With this in mind, the Estonian Marine Institute at the University of Tartu has set up a project to create an autonomous vessel and survey platform that would significantly reduce the need for manpower and use of large vessels in the future. EU funding has been essential for this project, which could have not been implemented otherwise. By supporting innovative solutions, the EU encourages the development of new technologies while furthering the objectives of decarbonisation and sustainability which are at the core of the European Green DealSearch. The project promoters at the Estonian Marine Institute at the University of Tartu have assessed that the sonar sampling could be conducted entirely on smaller vessels, since the sonar itself is quite small (less than 100 kg) and the system is very reliable. The goal is thus to use an unmanned vessel for the sonar work and reserve the large survey vessels for trawl sampling.
