MZT Pumpi AD

UUVS: It's all About Networking

The Unmanned Underwater Vehicle Showcase, UUVS, took place in Southampton (UK) on 22nd and 23rd September 2009.

It’s all about facts and figures

When I started writing this blog, I remembered a news item on an exciting expedition due to set off to the Arctic waters that was published on our website.

IHO to Change its Organisation and Format
