CANOPUS 2

En cours

Complex Acoustic Network for Offshore Positioning and Underwater Surveillance

The project is innovatory in that it aims to manage the positioning of different subsea vehicles by developing intelligent beacons capable of communicating and conducting calculations. By integrating acoustic communication systems and protocols into the beacons, it is possible to control the drift of the network on the one hand and to allow several vehicles to use the system simultaneously on the other.

The CANOPUS project is aimed at the deep ocean offshore market where communication arrays are becoming an operational imperative. But the project is also seeking to respond to the complex issues of acoustic positioning in the subsea environment of coastal zones.
