AUV Sonar System

AUV Sonar System




Capable of wide-beam scans, MarineNav's AUV sonar system serves as a perfect complement to your ROV fleet, replacing the need for destructive bottom dredging or expensive dive teams. MarineNav wide-beam scan sonar systems are ideal for preliminary assessment of potential target areas capturing anomalies that can be reviewed and marked with geo-markers for future ROV exploration.

Contact us for estimated release date and information of the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle sonar system.

MarineNav's Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) is a tether less self-propelled battery-powered autonomous underwater vehicle designed using modular construction. Modular construction provides users complete control over payloads and AUV runtime based upon dive specific needs. A topside control unit allows users to load pre-recorded GPS waypoint coordinates, or enter your own coordinates to a touch-sensitive user interface screen to create autonomous flight paths. Optional payload modules and accessories available.

MarineNav's AUV includes these features

  • Modular design. Constructed from lightweight marine-grade materials

    Manufactured from lightweight marine-grade materials, the modular design of the AUV system allows users the ease of transporting the system without excess bulk or weight. All system components are protected by IP-rated hardshell cases.

  • Customized payload modules for mission-specific tasks

    AUV modules can be fitted with various payloads to perform dive-specific tasks, Perform Bathymetric sonar surveys, or do side-scan surveys. Record video and save photographic images to large onboard hard drives. Conduct water quality measuring and scientific data collection.

  • Battery operated for fully autonomous flights

    Extend dive times by customizing AUV payload modules with higher capacity batteries and with the option of tethering your AUV to a topside power source run surface or close to vessel flights independent of battery lifespan.

  • Outfitted with powerful navigation and flight sensors

    System fitted with DVL (Doppler Velocity Log) Industrial INS (Inertial Navigation System) Industrial IMU and heading sensors.

  • Multiple thrusters for responsive autonomous flight

    The AUV is outfitted with a minimum of five powerful thrusters. Two thrusters control AUV depth, two thrusters control lateral movement and a fifth larger thruster (located behind the AUV tail), controls forward and reverse momentum.

  • Programme AUV with flight waypoints or flight transects

    Create autonomous flight patterns by inputting waypoints or points of interest through a touch-sensitive interface, or upload transects or survey grid patterns to allow for controlled sweeps over larger areas.

  • Optional sensors enhance the performance of your AUV

    Possible optional sensors include; USBL positioning sensors and altimeter sensors. Speak to MarineNav about the possibilities.

  • Optional USBL Positioning

    (Ultra Short Base Line can be powered from the AUV or independently on a battery to help track the location of the AUV).

  • Topside GPS mast

    Minimize AUV position drift, the AUV surfaces to lock onto the GPS signal before submerging again.

  • Optional WIFI broadcasting

    Surface the AUV and stream live data to the control topside or offload data without the need of retrieving the AUV system.
