Marine Robotics

The GEOMAR operates autonomous and remotely-operated robots under water, on the sea surface and in the air. Large instruments for underwater use are the ROV PHOCA and the ROV Kiel 6000, the AUVs ABYSS, Anton, Luise and AEGIR, the seabed crawler VIATOR and the modular ocean observatory MoLab. In addition, four wavegliders and a large fleet of underwater gliders and floats are now in use. Above water the GEOMAR operates several flying drones.
