Description

Did you know that we know more about the surface of the moon, than about our oceans? With 70 percent of our planet covered by water there is still plenty left to be discovered. Reaching these last unknown places is a great technological challenge because it requires vehicles that can withstand the extreme underwater conditions.

Tethys wants to bring together students with a passion for underwater technology and exploration and aims to be the first Swiss team ever to participate in the 2019 MATE ROV competition.
This competition is held by the Institute for Marine Advanced Technology and Education (MATE) in the USA. Its goal is to motivate students, to apply and expand their knowledge by building an underwater robot, which can be used to solve various complicated tasks defined by judges.
