The factory acceptance test (FAT) procedure will provide the first view of system flaws, performance issues and usability weaknesses, representing a valuable mean for technically assessing project health & safety measures and safety requirements. Therefore, a list of test cases (or use cases) will be presented throughout the deliverable. Thanks to these tests, first every significant part and then the whole system (once everything is installed and connected), will be evaluated: this will allow to consider any problem that may arise and/or any weakness that may concern one or more parts of the system. Based on the results, it will be possible to proceed by solving the issues that appeared, to then obtain a fully functional infrastructure through which its suitability for the intended purposes can be demonstrated. The tests in question will be carried out both in the laboratory and in a controlled and simulated environment, including the Istanbul Aquarium, the open sea with the help of Italian Corps and, later, the sea environments (real missions at UCH and MPA sites). Istanbul Aquarium holds a leading position among worldwide aquariums thanks to its volume, variety of fish species, and the activities on travel routes. Visitors follow a geographical route that includes 16 themes and 1 rainforest going from the Black Sea towards the Pacific. The aquarium was designed by public aquarium design consultants OCEAN Projects. Divesafe Istanbul Aquarium tests lasted more than 3 months and revealed important information on the structural and functional components of the system. In the studies carried out for the Divesafe project, in which Innovasub is also a participator, the fat tests stage has been reached despite the pandemic. The works are carried out actively in the Istanbul Aquarium by taking the necessary precautions. Click here to see our YouTube channel and watch the video about factory acceptance test.
DiveSafe consortium kick off meeting took place at the ATLANTIS offices in Thessaloniki, Greece on the 13th of February 2019. The meeting was broken into two sessions, morning and afternoon.

We have been working hard to study the structure of school curricula to find all possible connections between subjects, Ocean Literacy Principles and scuba diving training/practice, and finally… welcome to the Green Bubbles manual! You will find a series of practical and theoretical modules covering school curricula subjects in Biology, Chemistry, Earth Sciences and Physics. Each module links with one or more of the established Ocean Literacy Principles, and offers a range of resources – including how to best connect the topic covered in the module with aspects of the scuba diving (or snorkeling) training and experience. Thanks to its intuitive visual tagging system, you can use the manual starting from elements of the diving and snorkeling experience, to find the best ways and link them with school topics.
Innovasub participates the Divesafe project which is Co-funded by the EMFF programme of the European Union. DiveSafe will integrate a number of diving-related technologies, equipment and apps into a comprehensive solution allowing for more efficient and safe scientific and professional diving missions.
DiveSafe will integrate a number of diving-related technologies, equipment and apps into a comprehensive solution allowing for more efficient and safe scientific and professional diving missions. Underwater sites are inevitably difficult to access and more hazardous, compared to dry land. To address this challenge, the project integrates SoTA technologies, in order to deliver to the diving market (primarily professional/scientific and secondarily recreational) an innovative product that will allow divers to safely and efficiently conduct underwater surveys for accomplishing tasks related to visual census, photographic and photogrammetric documentation, exploration of unknown areas, search and recovery, touristic visit of wide underwater sites, etc.

Divers operate in harsh and poorly monitored environments in which the slightest unexpected disturbance, technical malfunction, or lack of attention can have catastrophic consequences.
They manoeuvre in complex 3D environments, carry cumbersome equipment, while performing their mission.
To overcome these problems, CADDY aims to establish an innovative set-up between a diver and companion autonomous robots (underwater and surface) that exhibit cognitive behaviour through learning, interpreting, and adapting to the diver’s behaviour, physical state, and actions.
