The Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) „ABYSS“ is a modular AUV designed to survey
the ocean combining geophysical studies of the seafloor with oceanographic investigations of the
overlying water column. The basic mission of ABYSS is deep-sea exploration, specifically in volcanically
and tectonically active parts, such as mid-ocean ridges. With a maximum mission depth of 6000
meters, the AUV uses several technologies to map the seafloor accurately and determine its geological
structure with applications from geology to biology to mineral exploration.
