This project aims to launch a new remotely operated seafloor-based site investigation system into the OW market. A recently developed robotic general-purpose submarine drilling machine will be tooled for the specific site investigation requirements of OW. The system will be tested at sea, to provide a demonstration of capabilities in a realistic commercial-like scenario. The state-of-theart characteristics of the sampling and testing performed will be independently documented. Returns from the project are anticipated (a) from the commercial operation of this new site investigation system (b) from the re-sale of some components specifically developed in this project (c) from ulterior licensing and or re-sale of similar systems.
