An international group of defence and civilian specialists in mine countermeasures visited Saab Seaeye’s UK facility. The group, that included the Deputy Director of The NATO Underwater Research Centre, saw a range of existing and newly developed underwater robotic vehicles used in searching for, disarming and neutralising mines and waterborne IEDs, Saab Seaeye wrote. The robotic vehicles are designed to work remotely to reduce the risk towards mine disposal personnel at sea and in waterways.

A world-class research facility specialising in underwater robotic technologies will be built in Launceston. The $750,000 Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) facility will be located at the University of Tasmania's Australian Maritime College.
Subsea UK has committed £20,000 to the Scottish MATE ROV competition, the industry body announced at Subsea Expo. The initiative, organised by the Robert Gordon University, encourages young engineers to design and test underwater machinery with help from industry mentors. Subsea UK joins BP, which has supported the competition since its first year, as headline sponsors, with ROVOP and The Underwater Centre in Fort William providing additional support.
A team of marine biologists discovered that great white sharks ambush prey from the ocean's dark depths, as they attacked drones recording their movements Great white sharks appear to use darkness and depth to ambush prey, marine biologists have learned, thanks to unprecedented footage by an undersea drone that was attacked nine times by four sharks. In the 13 hours of footage, the sharks cruise low above the sand, swim up to the robotic vehicle and inspect it from all sides, bump it curiously, and burst out of the blue to seize the drone in their jaws.
Robotic gliders deployed by the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research's (CSIR's) Southern Ocean Carbon and Climate Observatory unit are set to shape the future of marine research and environmental monitoring of the Southern Ocean and South African waters.

PhotoSynergy Ltd (PSL) has added a new product to its subsea portfolio, the SLS2000, developed to provide the option to illuminate the dive umbilical from the diver end. The unit, with 30mm in diameter and 70mm length, was designed to provide a light source to saturation divers using an LED attached to the umbilical at the diver’s end. Operational sea trials of the unit are planned with existing clients following the completion of final in-house tests and third party pressure testing.
German researchers have developed a prototype autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) that can easily be mass-produced and transported, in a bid to open up deep-sea exploration for a wide range of industrial and scientific applications.
