Abstract:This paper covers the results of a design study recently completed in Japan on manned submergence research vehicles equipped with Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) and/or Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs). The primary features and general overview of the vehicle designs are described, and some of the major items to be examined in each study are introduced.
At the outset of this study, the opinions of many domestic scientists and scholars were collected in order to identify the most important subjects of future scientific research in the deep ocean.
This study was carried out by the "ad hoc Committee" organized by the Japan Deep Sea Technology Association.
