Description: Asemar is a fully autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) intended for maritime surveillance of maritime areas, investigation and searches for submerged objects with certain characteristics and security. The project was launched in January 2008 involving Thales, ECA and IXSEA and the research laboratories of Ensieta, Ecole Navale, ISEN and UBO. Asemar AUV will be equipped with a next-generation high-resolution side-scan sonar with synthetic-aperture array from Thales, which will give the AUV unparalleled measurement and imaging performance.

This innovative AUV will feature high levels of decision-making autonomy, generation of high-resolution underwater imagery from depth and compatibility with standard off-the-shelf equipment. The system will also have the capability to track changes in the undersea environment between subsequent missions and compare the objects it detects with those stored in its database.
