We are talking about the vehicle Bluefin 12D (Deep) UUV, which can search 1.5 kilometer depth for 30 hours at a speed of 5.6 kilometers per hour. In addition, will involve three drone Iver 580 UUV.
Sivkov noted that the search of the boat in case it sank and the crew perished, almost senseless with traditional systems. Therefore, the so-called visual and sonar search, which can do Autonomous drones, remains the only way to find the submarine.
“This should significantly improve the chance of finding this submarine,” — said Konstantin Sivkov.
