ABYSSA can then use these to pinpoint the location of an isolated object even more accurately. This may include locating a shipwreck, thousands of which cover the sea floor, or a shipping container that has been lost at sea. According to the World Shipping Council, an estimated 2,600 to 10,000 containers are lost every year. We can also look for an aircraft’s black box, to find out why it crashed, or even radioactive waste deliberately dumped or accidentally discharged at sea.
We can also locate linear objects, such as cables, pipelines or outlet channels, or even natural sites featuring remarkable geological, magnetic, topographic or thermal anomalies, as well as the occasional biocoenosis.
