Getting to the bottom of our Ocean. A global competition challenging teams to push the boundaries of ocean technologies by creating solutions that advance the autonomy, scale, speed, depths and resolution of ocean exploration.
The success of this prize will allow us to fully explore and map the ocean floor, and uncover our planets greatest wonder and resource for the benefit of humanity. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s bonus prize will incentivize teams to develop technologies to detect the source of chemical and biological signals underwater.
Teams will compete in two rounds of testing that:
Must launch from shore or air and, with restricted human intervention, their entries will have limited number of hours to explore the competition area (at depths of 2000 and 4000 meters) to produce:
1. a high resolution bathymetric map
2. images of a specified object
3. identify archaeological, biological or geological features
Für dieses Anforderungsprofil haben sich unsere Schüler Gedanken gemacht und erste Designstudien vorgelegt.
