The search continues in the Priozersk region in the direction of Lahdenpokhya – Sortavala. In these places, the German-Finnish-Italian flotilla defended the occupied shores and attacked ships going with cargoes to Leningrad. But the main target of the enemy was the warships of the Ladoga flotilla: gunboats, patrol boats, minesweepers, boats. “We are preparing to dive,” expedition member Stanislav Trofimov told RG. “How does the search work? The sonar equipment is installed on the ship. It is connected to a laptop, which will receive all the information. The ship operator scans the bottom and the laptop displays objects. If you walk in a small area of a few kilometers, it is quite convenient. But if you need to cover tens of kilometers, difficulties arise. And we decided that artificial intelligence would help us
The researchers will save the entire data set collected by the sonar. They will be passed through a neural network that can recognize underwater objects. As a result, the system, by the way, created in Russia, will show divers where to dive.
