How robo-boat tech could help uncover ocean secrets

An uncrewed robotic surface vessel that can deploy and recover autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) has been developed.

The team behind the technology, GEBCO-NF, won this year’s Shell Ocean Discovery XPRIZE which looks for the best new technology to map the seafloor. The team say the $7m (£5.5m) prize money will help fund their future ocean projects.

More than 80% of the ocean floor is still unexplored.
