Rosatom Develops A Digital Model of An Unmanned Vessel For The Arctic

Experts of the Russian Federal Nuclear Center of the Rosatom State Nuclear Energy Corporation are developing a digital model of an unmanned vessel that is intended to improve the efficiency of Arctic shipping.

“Unmanned navigation is the most promising direction for information technologies implementation in sea and river transportation. A digital model of an unmanned vessel will allow to significantly improve the hull design, forgo the bridge structure, place cargo in the vessel’s breast, optimize the vessel’s dimensions to exclude issues with rolling oscillation and life-support. We can also expand cargo compartments and extend navigation terms”, said the representative of the Nuclear Center.
