The aim of this project is to investigate and explore vehicle-related performance factors. The investigation will study e.g. propulsion, hydrodynamics, control strategies, velocity effects, scale factors, hotel load and payload energy needs. Focus is on multi-variable optimization techniques regarding electro, mechanical and hydromechanical design as well as on modes of operation on primarily, long range and long endurance maritime underwater robot, including alternative propulsion systems.
The project will also support the design of the demonstrators.
