Underwater robot for Oceanographic research “MAKO”.
Underwater robot for Oceanographic research “MAKO” is an underwater airframe – glider with a pre-installed measuring devices soaring in the aquatic environment due to changes of buoyancy of the hull. It is fully Autonomous, silently moving in water, has a large margin of autonomy of navigation.
Underwater robot for Oceanographic research “MAKO” is an underwater airframe – glider with a pre-installed measuring devices soaring in the aquatic environment due to changes of buoyancy of the hull.
The buoyancy of the apparatus is governed by the volume of polymer “swim bladder”, which from a special cylinder oil is pumped.
When the module changes the buoyancy, the inside of the device, is inflated with oil, the volume of the module increases and the glider rises. When the oil is pumped, there is a force that pulls it down. So the glider as it moves up and down.
The development of automatic and robotic underwater vehicles can save people from the risk to which they may be subjected when working under water, and to help in the exploration of the underwater world. Studies of the world ocean are of strategic importance for any power that expects to maintain its sovereignty in the next hundred or two hundred years. While the research is not only of fundamental importance – the generation of new knowledge, but also the economic exploration and exploitation of natural resources (biological, geological, etc.).
– full autonomy of work,
– ease of deployment
– underwater robot “MAKO” has a large margin of autonomy of navigation
– no need for the escort vessel,
– silent movement in the water,
– the possibility of conducting mass studies
– the possibility of motion, hovering at the desired point in the drift,
– the possibility of action in the shallow areas
– a wide set of measured parameters,
– possibility group of use
– modularity of the build.
– subsystem of control of traffic (autopilot),
– subsystem measuring of parameters okeanologicheskikh fields (in basic version, the CID system)
– subsystem communication and information exchange with the control Center,
– navigation subsystem,
