Sines'2017 sea trial

project WiMUST geophysical exploration

Sines'17 WiMUST experiment July 17-23, 2017

The main objective of WiMUST is to use existing and develop new state of the art underwater robotic technology for efficient geo-physical exploration of surficial sediment properties. This sea trial took place in the Port of Sines and involved all partners operating two surface vehicles and up to 6 autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs).
