Title
(EN) SUBMARINE EXPLORATION SYSTEM COMPRISING A FLEET OF DRONES
(FR) SYSTÈME D'EXPLORATION SOUS-MARINE COMPRENANT UNE FLOTTE DE DRONES
Abstract
(EN) The invention concerns a submarine exploration system (1) comprising: a master submarine drone (2) designed to move autonomously according to a predetermined flight plan (E) and comprising a communication module (C) for transmitting communication signals; a plurality of follower submarine drones (31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36), each comprising at least one magnetic field detection system (D), each follower drone further comprising a communication module (C) for receiving communication signals from the master drone; the master drone being designed to transmit navigation instructions (I) to the follower drones and each follower drone being designed to move autonomously depending on the movement instruction such that its movement is slaved to the movement of the master drone.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système (1) d'exploration sous-marine, comportant : un drone sous-marin maître (2) agencé pour se déplacer de façon autonome selon un plan de vol prédéterminé (E) et comportant un module de communication (C) pour émettre des signaux de communications; une pluralité de drones sous-marins suiveurs (31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36), comportant chacun au moins un système de détection de champ magnétique (D), chaque drone suiveur comportant en outre un module de communication (C) pour recevoir des signaux de communication du drone maître; le drone maître étant agencé pour émettre des instructions de navigation (I) à destination des drones suiveurs et chaque drone suiveur étant agencé pour se déplacer de façon autonome selon ladite instruction de déplacement de sorte à ce que son déplacement soit asservi au déplacement du drone maître.
