Scientists from the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) have successfully tested a new approach to help improve knowledge of the deepest parts of the ocean.
Two Maldivian women will make history as part of a ten-strong science team from the Indian Ocean nation, when they join an international science mission and venture deep into the waters off their homeland to discover exactly what needs to be done to ensure their country remains habitable in the face of global warming. Four of the ten Maldivian scientists taking part are women.
In aerial and terrestrial applications, robotic swarms allow for mission adaptability, robustness, and scalability. In aerial and terrestrial applications, access to GPS data and high-speed communications allows robotic swarms to operate functionally; however, expanding swarming capabilities below the ocean surface remains a significant challenge.
