Abstract

Beschrieben wird ein Kopplungskopf (8), an den ein autonomes Unterwasserfahrzeug (4) mittels eines Rendezvouskopfes (18) angekoppelt werden kann, und der Rendezvouskopf (18). Der Kopplungskopf (8) weist Lagestabilisierungsmittel (12) zum Stabilisieren seiner Ausrichtung und Lage im Wasser unterhalb der Wasseroberfläche auf. Der Rendezvouskopf (18) ist mit dem Unterwasserfahrzeug (4) verbunden oder verbindbar oder Teil des Unterwasserfahrzeugs (4).Described is a coupling head (8) to which an autonomous underwater vehicle (4) by means of a Rendezvouskopfes (18) can be coupled, and the Rendezvouskopf (18). The coupling head (8) has position stabilizing means (12) for stabilizing its orientation and position in the water below the water surface. The rendezvous head (18) is connected to the underwater vehicle (4) or connectable or part of the underwater vehicle (4).
Beschrieben wird weiterhin eine Kopplungseinrichtung (2) mit dem Kopplungskopf (8) und mit einem mit dem Kopplungskopf (8) mechanisch, elektrisch und signalverbindend verbundenen oder abtrennbar verbindbaren Kabel (10), sowie eine Rendezvouseinrichtung (16) mit dem Rendezvouskopf (18) nebst weiteren Einrichtungen, das Unterwasserfahrzeug (4) mit dem Rendezvouskopf (18) und/oder mit der Rendezvouseinrichtung (16) und ein Kopplungssystem (1), das zumindest den Kopplungskopf (8) und den Rendezvouskopf (18) aufweist. Schließlicht wird beschrieben ein Kopplungsverfahren (58) und ein Einsatzverfahren (56) eines autonomen Unterwasserfahrzeugs (4), welches das Kopplungsverfahren (58) umfasst.
