The aim of this project is to develop capability to operate Maritime Underwater Robots in collaboration with other underwater systems such as manned submarines, habitats or other unmanned systems, with focus on autonomous launch and retrieval of the underwater robot as well as sensing, autonomous guiding, docking system, transfer of data and energy.
Examples of applications are operating the underwater robot from the multi-mission portal on the next generation submarines, or to dock into an underwater habitat in order to exchange data exchange or charge energy.
