The second edition of the Catch The Next Wave (CTNW) conference on future technological trends in marine robotics and automation took place in London in March with the involvement of PLOCAN.

In the week beginning 14th March, the Fraunhofer Institute of Optronics, System Technologies and Image Exploitation (IOSB) in Germany tested the DeDaVe, a new autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV), at the PLOCAN Test Site.

The prototype AUV, built with German technology, is able to dive and operate completely autonomously down to 6,000 metres depth. It is also capable of carrying a diverse payload of sensors and measurement instruments suitable for tackling various types of mission in the fields of oceanography, hydrography, geophysics, and search and location, among other important applications.
