FIELAX has developed a variable all-purpose, low-cost buoyancy system for submarine Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV). Within the project a prototype was developed consisting of four variable bouyancy modules and a control unit. By adjusting the volume of single modules dynamically both neutral buoyancy and/or rebalancing can be achieved. The study was funded by EUROPEAN UNION: Investing in your future European Regional Development Fund.
