moNitoring offshorE StructureS with robotIc systems intEgration

The NESSIE project, (?moNitoring offshorE StructureS with robotIc systems intEgration?), is promoted by A. Silva Matos Metalomecânica (Leading Copromotor), Composite Solutions and Antartic Module Yard (Business Copromotors), together with INESC TEC, FEUP and ISEP (ENESII), and aims to research and develop a fleet of technological solutions to reduce the high costs of inspecting and monitoring underwater marine infrastructures. NESSIE represents an innovative vision that integrates underwater robots with heterogeneous systems to investigate the technicalscientific uncertainties, as well as, the advantages that will rise from increasing the presence of these robotic platforms to multiple days. The NESSIE?s vision incorporates the autonomous and semi-permanent mobile robots with new technologies for visual inspection and continuous monitoring of underwater scenarios, the development of supporting systems to provide operational resources (energy, communication and security) for extending the presence of mobile robots in mission (from half a day to multiple days) and, finally, the development of a new mission platform to facilitate the deployment and recovery of specialized equipment at sea.
