New design for the tag - November-December 2020

Following the mechanical problems that occurred on the two tags tested in real conditions during the mission to Europa in September-October 2020, the manufacturing process was entirely reviewed by Ifremer and the Montpellier Laboratory of Computer Science, Robotics and Microelectronics (LIRMM), the project's scientific and technological partner.

While keeping the same configuration, mechanical improvements were made to reduce potential water infiltration, facilitate the production and reproducibility of the tags thanks to a 3D printer. A new, more resistant resin was used and manufacturing time was considerably reduced with this new manufacturing process.
