The aim of this project is the development of multi-purpose platform technologies for subsea operations (MPPT Ring), including easing survey equipment integration, efficient planning & mission simulation, training ROV pilots, ROV fault-tolerant control, enhanced in-mission operator environment, auto-enhanced survey execution, and offline analysis & replay of acquired data. This project provides new innovative technologies for the offshore oil & gas industry, ROV manufacturers, marine survey companies and researchers. The MPPT Ring is implemented as a hardware/software platform and web-service to enable product demonstration both offline (e.g. in a lab or trade show) and online (for run-time survey application). A general overview of the project is given in this paper.
