Smart solar powered catamaran for exploring the depths of the sea

British researchers are going to study underwater geysers at the bottom of the Celtic Sea, using the innovative “smart” C-Enduro catamaran, powered by solar energy.

One of the most poorly studied seas in the world is the Celtic Sea, which washed the waves of Ireland, France and Great Britain and enters the Atlantic Ocean basin. Scientists are very interested in geothermal sources scattered on the bottom of this sea, as well as the forms of life that live near underwater geysers. To date, the Celtic Sea is less than 2% studied.

To solve such a difficult and ambitious task, expensive expeditions are needed – it is necessary to lower special equipment and personnel to the seabed. 21st century technology has made it possible to optimize scientific research.

Now, the study of the seabed, or rather the collection of data, can be carried out automatically. For this, scientists intend to use the unmanned research catamaran C-Enduro. The catamaran will collect information on the composition of sea water at different depths, its temperature and currents. She will explore the local plankton and map local animals using the echolocation system.

C-Enduro will operate on solar and wind energy. This will make it as independent of civilization as possible and will allow you to travel the sea for many months. Information will be collected using special sensors immersed in water on the winch.

New vehicles appear today more and more. One of them – Scubster Nemo – a vehicle for lazy divers, which is suitable for both amateurs and professionals.
