Deep-sea Technology Development


India has been working to harness ocean mineral resources. In view of this, collaboration with the Russian scientists have developed and tested an instrument to measure sea bed soil properties in-situ, at a depth of 5200 m. The deep water trials of ROSUB (remotely operable vehicle) were conducted successfully at a depth of 5289 m in April 2010. The complete hardware and software for the instrumentation and control system were developed by the Indian scientists.
