NEW DESIGNS OF UNDERWATER VEHICLES FROM UNDERWATER TECHNOLOGY DEPARTMENT, TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY OF GDA SK

An autonomous vehicle prototype for Baltic Sea environment monitoring is currently under development. The paper describes operational requirements for the craft and its principal components. Vehicle control by remote means is not discarded however. This technology has been adopted for a sea mine destruction system with disposable low cost vehicles used for mine identification and destruction. Another interesting development is the newest version of a diver towing vehicle. The vehicle is constantly improved and modified to different requirements regarding range and special equipment. The latest design is briefly described.
