This project aimed to develop a device for recording the movements of pipes and underwater structures in relation to cycles of temperature and pressure on deep sea oil installations to assess the fatigue of these structures, and anticipate damage.

Testing of a prototype was carried out in 2010 and led to a shift in the functional specification. This study, in particular allowed the members of the consortium to develop a new approach to identifying acoustic targets.
