Abstract : Since November, 6, 1664, close to the French shipyard of Toulon, the shipwreck of the Lune lies 90 meters deep, remarkably preserved. Yearly, in fall, the trials of the Corsaire Project consortium and it's invited partners are performed in this exceptional environment, thus allowing the estimate of the performances of the developed robotic tools under real conditions. This year, for the wreckage's 350 years celebration, sensing and sampling methods have been evaluated. The team has not only tested 3D laser scanning methods and underwater omnidirectional cameras, but also two new grasping devices, specifically designed for the project, and embedded on a mini-ROV: a mobile claw, and a 2000 meters depth rated robotic hand. This talk will first remind the story of the Lune, focusing on its remarkable state of conservation and its historical interest. Then the Corsaire Project will be presented, and the tests performed this year on the shipwreck will be detailed and analyzed. This talk will be illustrated by many unreleased pic-tures and movies.
