"AQUA EXPLORER 2" (AE-2) and "AQUA EXPLORER 2000" (AE-2000) are small
Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV) to survey submarine cable.
AE-2 was developed by KDDI Research Institute and manufactured by MES. Its
underwater navigation depth is 500m. AE-2000 is the developed type of AE-2 and its
outside feature is the same as AE-2, but its continuous operation time is twice of AE-2’s
and navigation depth is up to 2000 meters.
Its is expected to be used for fishery resources survey, marine biological survey, wide
ranging environmental survey, etc.
Cable tracking and its buried depth investigation.
Continuous photographing of sea bottom.
Survey of water temperature (option).
