Approach & Solution
Hull inspections, explosive ordnance search and clearance, data collection in the landing channel (stretch of sea in front of a 'landing beach'), to name a few, but the most relevant, can be performed by state-of-the-art Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV).
In addition to drastically decreasing the risk of personnel exposure, the adoption of these devices would significantly improve the volume and quality of data collected. The quality and quantity of information collected is closely linked to the time and tools that can be used during inspection, search, clearance and recognition operations.
The project envisages the development of an innovative Underwater Vehicle, reconfigurable according to the mission to be carried out and prepared for dual use (military/civilian), capable of operating in Very Shallow Waters and in the Surf Zone, and able to assist/support personnel in the search and detection of explosive devices and in reconnaissance/data collection in a specific landing channel.
