For the first time in Georgia, the National Environment Agency has explored the Black Sea floor with a remote-controlled unmanned underwater vehicle, announces the Ministry of Environment Protection and Agriculture.
It is important that the unmanned underwater vehicle, in addition to conducting underwater hydrobiological research, provides a unique ability to monitor the depths of the sea and inland reservoirs. The new, high-tech equipment will significantly help the National Environment Agency to improve its monitoring of the Black Sea", says the ministry.
The unmanned underwater vehicle allows research to be carried out at a depth of 450 meters which is inaccessible to divers, even in conditions of limited visibility.
It can record the current situation on the seabed, monitor and scan it.
