The shipbuilders worked with a special focus on the design of the hull, as you can see here in a test of a hull model at the Hamburg Shipbuilding Research Institute basin. The SONNE's hull was designed to prevent bubbles from the water surface passing under the vessel and disrupting the echo sounders' reception.
