Project Details


UTOFIA is an H2020 Blue Growth project (grant 633098) with a start date February 1st 2015. The consortium is coordinated by SINTEF (NO), and its partners are Odos Imaging (UK), Fraunhofer IMS (DE), Bright Solutions (IT), Subsea Tech (FR), AZTI Tecnalia (ES), DTU Aqua (DK).
This project will offer a compact and cost-effective underwater imaging system for turbid environments. Using range-gated imaging, the system will extend the imaging range by factor 2 to 3 over conventional video systems. At the same time, the system will provide video-rate 3D information.
This will fill the current gap between short-range, high-resolution conventional video and long-range low-resolution sonar systems.
UTOFIA offers a new modus operandi for the main targeted domains of application: marine life monitoring, harbour and ocean litter detection, fisheries and aquaculture stock assessment, and seabed mapping.
