Maritime Robotics’ Otter USV is the ultimate hydrographic survey tool for mapping sheltered and enclosed waters. With tight integration between the on-board control system which enables autonomy and the multi-beam echo sounder, a bathymetric survey can be executed with a simple, streamlined workflow
VEHICLE CONTROL STATION
Sensor and payload data can be monitored in the Vehicle Control Station. Multi-beam data, swath width, coverage area, and quality parameters can be displayed in real time on an intuitive user interface.
20 hours endurance with 2kn, 65kg total weight, WiFi, 4G and optional long range radio link. Dimensions: 200 x 108 x 106.5cm. The Otter can be dismantled into smaller components (hulls, mid section, batteries and payload), such that one person can transport the Otter to the site of interest.
BATHYMETRIC MAPPING SYSTEM
Ultra-compact single-beam and multi-beam sonar systems are available for integration for the Otter. This makes the Otter a turn-key solution for bathymetric surveys in sheltered waters.
4 CUSTOM SENSOR INTEGRATION
Sensors such as an ADCP, CTD, fluorometers, and a hyperspectral imager can easily and cost-efficiently be integrated. We also provide an SVP winch.
AUTONOMOUS MISSION PLANNING
Repetitive tasks, such as bathymetric mapping, are ideal for an automated robotic system. The Otter performs these tasks without the
expenses or extensive resources needed for traditional surveys. The VCS software enables easy planning of autonomous survey missions,
including automatic enabling/disabling of sensors and auto-cast for the SVP winch.
