Engineering | innovation | To this day, the world's oceans and their seabed are largely unexplored. The conditions on the seabed are too extreme for humans – such as the very high pressure that exists in the depths of the oceans. These extreme circumstances have turned the deep sea to a fascination for mankind up to the present day. Above all, researchers, navies and utilities are interested in exploring the great unknown. The goal: comprehensive mapping of the seabed - a kind of Google Maps for the sea floor.
