Our earth seems to have been completely discovered: Humans have reached the top of Mount Everest almost 7,000 times so far. The ice deserts of Antarctica attract about 30-40,000 tourists annually. And even on Tristan da Cunha, the most remote island in the world, is home to 270 people – 2,800 kilometers from the nearest mainland. However, 70% of our oceans are still unexplored and make up two thirds of the earth’s surface. With a groundbreaking idea, an innovative team within the thyssenkrupp network wants to make the dark spots of the deep sea visible. Their goal is to develop “oXeanpedia”, the world’s largest real-time underwater database – inspired by the digital map services of the internet. For this highly ambitious mission, the company developed the oXeanseeker, an underwater vehicle that can explore underwater conditions completely autonomously. 


The oXeanseeker says “ahoy by-catch”

In addition to various and easily interchangeable sensors for different applications, the meter long and 10 kilograms light oXeanseeker is equipped with up to three high-resolution cameras. The oXeanseeker opens up the extremely interesting, and perhaps surprising market of deep-sea fishing – an industry in which there is particular pressure to work both sustainably and cost-effectively. “Despite their sonars and their experience, fish skippers still have to accept great uncertainties today because they cannot always clearly determine the exact composition of the shoal of fish among them beforehand,” says product manager Max Abildgaard, who is also the creative mind behind the idea. “As a result, there are is still an unbelievable amount of by-catch today.” By-catch, these are fish and other marine animals that end up in the trawl but are not the fisherman’s actual target.
