SURF20 ADCP Monohull Remote Measurement Boat is designed for water discharge measurement and hydrographic survey developed by Oceanalpha Co., Ltd located in Zhuhai, China focusing on the research and development of Unmanned Survey Vessels, compatible with different brands ADCP and single beam sonar, such as Teledyne RD Instruments workhorse RIO Grande, RDI, Sontek River Surveyor S5/M9, Linkquest Flowquest and etc.
The Remote Measurement Boat size is 1.25*0.46*0.3m and only 13kg weight which makes it maneuverable, compact, and could easily be operated by just one person and carried on the back of a SUV or a trunk. The maximum speed can reach 5.5m/s covered within 2km communication control range, so that the boat is suitable for most water current environment.
SURF 20 on which various brands ADCP available on market are installed stands out from other unmanned remote control boats in water discharge measurement and hydrographic survey attributing to its extreme shallow draft-25cm, convenient laying and delivery, conducting survey and measurement in water area where traditional surveying and measuring method are impossible to proceed.
Using SURF 20 unmanned remote control hydrographic boat can reduce blind spot largely during working, improve working efficiency , accuracy.
SURF20 is made of Carbon fiber and fiber glass featured by its anti-corrosion, anti-wave, low temperature resistance, mounted with two propellers to avoid aquatic plants and garbage twining.
The following choices of base station with their own advantages can be cooperated with the USV according to different demands :
1. Tough book base station featured by water-proof, dust-proof and shock proof;
2. Integrated base station characterized by its sunlight readable 15 Inch touch screen portable base station featured by using the commercial notebook computer and optional the scheme of communication relay station or radio communication module;
3. relay station distinguished by its mobile phone terminal access function and smooth and stable communication.
SURF 20 is not only designed for water discharge measurement but also for delivery,such as delivering small parcels in near future.
