Yonder Deep's 2022 Norway Mission

Scientists studying glaciers need to get very close to collect analyzable data. However, calving events are incredibly dangerous, making it impossible to get close by boat. As a result, AUV’s have recently boomed in popularity because they are fully autonomous and are able gather high quality data with minimal resources. However, they are incredibly expensive, ranging from $10,000 to millions.

Yonder Deep’s primary goal is to make a low-cost, fully customizable AUV in order to revolutionize oceangraphic research.
