MDM Team tested Zeno AUV with the Marine Biology department of the University of Bologna in the Adriatic Sea collecting sonar and images at 70m depth.
MDM Team used Zeno to perform an underwater survey over a submerged wrech in Autonomous Mode.
MDM Team is cooperating tightly with the department of Mathematics to develop a novel guidance system for autonomous underwater vehicles based on the Pythagorean-Hodograph polynomial curves.
MDM Team and the Civil Protection Department started the ROMERO project to realize an experiment centered on Emergency Response Robotics.
The ROMERO project will make use of advanced sensors deployed over sea buoy, aerial wether station and a combination of marine and aerial innovative drones to acquire environmental data in hazardous and dangerous areas such as active volcano regions.
MDM Team participated to the italian seminary on underwater companies capabilities hosted by the Defense General Secretariat in Rome to address challenges and innovation demands from the military perspective.
On 19 March, the Parliament, together with the European Commission, hosted a conference on the future of oceans, with panel discussions covering global ocean governance; sustainable blue economy; and healthy, clean seas and oceans. MDM Team presented the results of the ARCHEOSUb Project showing the ZENO AUV and the experimental field results.
The ARCHEOSUb (Autonomous underwater Robotic and sensing systems for Cultural Heritage discovery Conservation and in situ valorization) project aims to develop products and services in support of the discovery of new Underwater Cultural Heritage (UCH) sites and of the surveying, conservation, protection, and valorization of new and existing ones.
Local, week-long experiments with the ZENO AUV were recently conducted in the ancient port of Caesarea and along Haifa’s southern coast, where the IAA is developing an underwater park. The site will eventually display anchors from various historical periods in a canyon at depths of 15 to 22 meters (49 to 72 feet), in their “natural environment.”
SEAFUTURE is one of the most prestigious events – exhibition & business convention – in the naval, shipbuilding and maritime sector with the unique feature of dual use, both in the civil and military sectors.
MDM Team presented the ARCHEOSUb project and attended to the reserved workshop ‘Unmanned systems in underwater warfare’ with the aim to plan the Italian Navy strategy in unmanned system for the next years.
