A Kongsberg Maritime turnkey AUV based bathymetry solution
The GeoSwath Plus REMUS 100 phase measuring bathymetric sonar offers simultaneous swath bathymetry and side scan seabed mapping from a payload module for the Hydroid REMUS 100 autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV). With a data coverage of up to 12 times the vehicle’s fly height and its low power consumption it offers unsurpassed efficiency for all military and civil survey applications.
Hydroid REMUS 100 is a compact, light-weight AUV designed for operation in coastal environments up to 100 meters in depth. It is the cornerstone of the coastal AUV market, with thousands of missions, and tens of thousands of mission hours to its credit.
The GeoSwath Plus REMUS 100 module contains the sonar electronics together with a high-spec small form factor PC, including local data storage, which can operate free running or interfaced to the AUV’s control and peripheral sensors using Ethernet and Serial connections. The small size port and starboard transducers are mounted directly to the module. The included software package provides full acquisition, calibration and data processing capabilities for producing the final bathymetry map and side scan mosaic data products.
