The underwater robot employed by the Return to Antikythera Project

A project of the Hellenic Ministry of culture and Sports, with the support of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute

Here's the link for daily updates re: the Antikythera shipwreck excavation during fieldwork.

http://antikythera.whoi.edu/blog/

The Underwater robot:

Is currently employed over the Antikythera shipwreck, with the underwater robot (AUV) making the first high resolution digital map of the area using multi-beam sonar.

The photographic shows the robot, minutes before diving to 15 metres above the bottom of the seabed to create a sonar map of the Antikythera shipwreck.

It will do various missions, next taking stereo photographs to create a detailed 3D model of the site.

This update was provided live from the support vessel POSEIDON, at sea, over the top of the Antikythera shipwreck using Cosmote 4G technology.
