Long endurance multi-functional platform for hydrographic surveying
Large capacity for oceanographic survey instruments
The M80 USV can carry up to 150kg of hydrographic & geophysical instruments to conduct multi- purposed hydrographic surveys in deep oceans.
Singlebeam echo sounder
Multibeam echo sounder
3D LiDAR scanner
Side scan sonar
Water quality sonde
Longer endurance, faster speed
With a 350 (gallon liter) fuel tank, the USV can sail for 50 hours continuously in one lifetime. (looking for clarification on what is meant by “lifetime”, one battery cycle or entire lifetime until it needs to be replaced）
The USV can sail up to 12kn/s with the high power water-jet propellor.
Better protection to equipment
The automatic flipper built in the center of the USV can store the surveying equipment while sailing to protect transducers and improve sailing speed.
Upper level of collision avoidance
Deployed with 4G Radar, an HD camera and LiDAR, the M80 USV can achieve an upper level of collision avoidance.
Automatic multi-purpose survey
Both the USV and the survey instruments are operated by the base station.Navigated by the GNSS positioning system, the USV can autonomously complete pre-planned, multi-purpose surveys and send data back to operators in real-time.
Operators can also control the USV manually within a 2km distance by using the remote controller .
Intelligent collision avoidance
The USV is mounted with millimeter-wave radar which can detect obstacles up to 50 meters ahead to avoid collision when in auto mode. Operators can observe water environments using the real-time video feed to better avoid obstacles when operating in manual mode.
