The Foundation for advanced study plans to explore the Mariana trench with the help of ultra-deep Autonomous underwater vehicle. Information about this is presented at the booth of the Foundation for East economic forum.

«A unique long-term study of the Mariana trench Autonomous unit in 2019», — stated in the Foundation booth, presenting posters and models of submersibles.

In addition to maneuvering underwater vehicle «Vityaz» on the bottom of the Mariana trench is planned to be lowered on a rope from the ship bottom station.

According to the materials, there will be a bottom mapping, search and classification of objects, the collection of hydrological data, photos and videoprivate, sampling. This project is planned to develop technology of creation of extreme underwater robotics.

In addition, at the stand of robotic tools for the extraction of hydrocarbons at the bottom of the Arctic: a submersible large autonomy Sarma, the energy of the underwater complex, underwater transport, installation and service complex, an underwater drilling complex and the complex underwater seismic exploration.
