FFI has been involved in the development of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) for more than 15 years.
​The HUGIN system was developed in a collaborative effort involving FFI, Kongsberg Maritime, Statoil, Norsk Undervannsintervensjon (NUI) and the Royal Norwegian Navy and is used by the offshore survey industry for detailed seabed mapping and data acquisition, and by navies for mine counter measures (MCM) and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR).

Today there are 30 scientists and engineers at FFI involved in the effort of increasing the effectiveness and area of uses for the system.

There are ongoing research projects in the following fields:
  • Autonomy
    Making the AUV more independent and “intelligent”
  • Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS)
    Providing high resolution sonar images of sea floor objects
  • Navigation
    Ensuring high accuracy navigation and high precision positioning of objects
  • Automatic Target Recognition (ATR)
    Enabling automatic detection of mine-like objects in sonar imagery
  • Camera
    Providing optical images for identification of underwater objects
  • Battery
    Extending the durability of the AUV
FFI operates HUGIN 1000 HUS, an AUV used for civilian and military experimentation, concept development and surveying.
