Supplementary data:


The manned submersible „JAGO“ is a human occupied underwater vehicle (HOV) designed
for personal exploration and research in all types of aquatic systems and habitats. The seafloor along the
continental shelf and slopes within the ocean twilight zone is JAGO’s main target area. The DNV-GL
classed 2-person submersible has a maximum operating depth of 400 m. The two occupants, the pilot
and one observer, are seated at 1 Atmosphere in a steel pressure hull with two large acrylic windows.
The submersible’s small size and lightweight construction (3 T) allows worldwide operations from on
board a wide variety of vessels as well as transport in a single standard 20-foot container together
with all support equipment. Typical applications include personal observation of the sea bed and water
column, video and photo documentation, selective non-intrusive sampling, placement of sensors and
experiments, underwater inspection, as well as location and recovery of objects.
