Abstract

We describe a cost-effective approach to path planning for submarine cables connecting a given site to an existing cable network on the Earth’s surface. The objective is to minimize the overall life-cycle cost of submarine cables by considering multiple design considerations. With the surface terrain represented by a triangulated manifold, we formulate the problem as variational optimization framed in terms of an Eikonal equation and solved by leveraging the fast marching method. The results based on real-world three-dimensional data are presented to illustrate the performance of this approach in the submarine cable network extension.
