The Remus 100-S is an evolution of the highly successful, man portable REMUS 100 system configured specifically for hydrographic and offshore surveys.
The REMUS 100-S also eliminates the need for larger vessels and costly special handling equipment.
Kongsberg Maritime autonomous underwater vehicles have been conducting high-quality commercial surveys at low cost for more than 15 years. During this period, AUV technology has matured and advanced rapidly, up to a point where reliability and capability now combine to enable operation in hydrographic surveys AUVs, due to their ability to carry sensors close to the bottom on an acoustically quiet and non-intrusive platform, allow the surveyor to collect high-resolution data in environments that would make shipboard collection uneconomical or impractical. The compact size of the REMUS 100-S allows for economical overnight shipping and two-man deployment and operation capability. The REMUS 100-S also eliminates the need for larger vessels and costly special handling equipment.
The REMUS 100-S builds on Hydroid's success with the standard REMUS 100 AUV. With over 200 REMUS 100's delivered since 2001, Hydroid has developed an unmatched reputation for high-quality, reliable vehicles. The REMUS 100-S incorporates all the standard equipment of the REMUS 100 and additionally includes:
Compatibility with Post Processing Software – Reflection (new KONGSBERG software being released this year), NavLab (for NavP) and GeoSwath which allows the REMUS 100-S operator to calculate the position, velocity, and attitude of the vehicle using raw acceleration and angular rate data from the IMU.
The NavLab Software enhances NavP by providing a navigation post processing toolbox that makes possible the re-navigation of the real time position solutions calculated in the field. Post processing navigation data with NavLab increases navigational accuracy and integrity. In short, NavP and NavLab give the REMUS 100-S unmatched navigational and position accuracy for a shallow water AUV.
