Fraunhofer Institute of Optronics, System Technologies and Image Exploitation (IOSB) in Germany has tested the DeDaVe, a new autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV), at the PLOCAN (Oceanic Platform of the Canary Islands) test site.

A team of technicians from Germany carried out the work at PLOCAN’s land-based facilities and in its test site off the coast of Telde, Spain.

The main objective of the trials was to validate the features and capabilities of the new device in deep water, in preparation for its commercialization in the near future.

The prototype AUV is able to dive and operate autonomously down to 6,000 meters depth.

It is capable of carrying out mission in the fields of oceanography, hydrography, geophysics, and search and location.
