It is planned to fit a recovery buoy to Artemis, rather than arranging for Artemis to surface for recovery. This buoy is based on the Fiobuoy concept (Fiomarine 2003). This will save the carriage of compressed air tanks, main ballast tanks, and associated valve gear. It will also provide for recovery even if Artemis is severely damaged. It is necessary to model the design to determine desirable design features. The scheme is applicable to 100m depths, but probably not much more.
