Brief description, technical and economic parameters of advantages and positive qualities.

An urgent scientific and applied problem has been solved – increasing the efficiency of underwater archaeological research based on the use of uninhabited vehicles by developing models for managing projects of their robotization, which became possible due to new scientific results obtained by the applicant personally: classification of archaeological research projects according to the principles (archaeological value of artifacts, type of underwater apparatus, project completion time, levels of cooperation and artifactness of projects that are carried out using underwater robotization technologies, which makes it possible to use human, material, financial and time resources more rationally due to their archiving; models for managing the content of archaeological research projects using uninhabited underwater devices that take into account the relationship between the processes of identifying artifact objects and the conditions for their location, as well as alternative technical solutions and alternative solutions selected on their basis projects, which provides a reduction in time and increased safety in the performance of underwater archaeological work; models for managing risks associated with meteorological and hydrological conditions, as well as with technological support in the area of ​​underwater archaeological research, which reduces the likelihood and absolute values ​​of project losses by harmonizing the choice of research periods for the type of uninhabited underwater vehicles with additional equipment and their carriers for conducting research according to the accepted technological map.

Conceptual frameworks for the management of underwater archaeological research have been developed, classification of underwater archaeological research projects based on uninhabited underwater vehicles has been developed, a model for managing the content of an underwater archaeological research project has been developed, risks arising from underwater archaeological research projects have been identified, and models for managing risks, weather and hydrological conditions in underwater archaeological research area, as well as technological support.
