Participants in the project cooperate in order to develop new technologies for deepwater and offshore positioning services. This new technology is needed to improve precision, availability, reliability and efficiency, enabling new survey methods and lowering operational cost of survey and construction activities in shallow (depths less than 500m), deep offshore (at depths between 500 and 1500 metres) and ultra-deep offshore (between 1500 and 3000 metres). Participants want to develop the new positioning technology by integrating different measurement methods that use a number of positioning techniques, which could deliver a breakthrough in underwater positioning.

The project title “IMAGINE” is based on this intended solution: Integration of Measurements from Acoustics, GNSS and Inertial sensors for Navigation Enhancements.
