SeaCat configuration

Platform: SeaCat
Manufacturer: Atlas Elektronik GmbH


The SeaCat is highly modular hybrid AUV combining the advantages of AUV and ROV technology. In addition to AUV functionality, the SeaCat is able to fly with a fibre optic cable connection in order to secure a real time sensor data transmission to the operator console. Emphasises is placed on the SwapHead Technology which enables flexible and fast adaptation to a number of various missions and tasks. The SeaCat allows to be equipped with several sensors of choice.


  • Fuselage built of removable sections, configuration may be changed if required
  • Variable payload in exchangeable sensorhead (Swap Head) to serve your needs
  • Hybrid operation in AUV or ROV mode: real time data transfer and vehicle control up to 1000 m through plug & play fiber optic Ethernet
  • External USB data storage for easy data access
  • Hovering capabilities and excellent manoeuvrability at low speeds for detailed inspection
  • Superb navigation by inertial navigation system, aided by GPS and Teledyne RDI DVL (no external navigation aid)
  • Minimal infrastructural requirements allow quick on-site installation
