Abstract

This paper is a section of several preliminary studies of the Underwater Drones Group of the Università degli Studi “Roma Tre” Science Department: We describe the study philosophy, the theoretical technological considerations for sizing and the development of a technological demonstrator of a high accuracy buoyancy and depth control. We develop the main requirements and the boundary conditions that design the buoyancy system and develop the mathematical conditions that define the main parameters. View Full-Text
