HUGIN 1000 is 75 cm in diameter and is available with 1000 m and 3000 m depth ratings. HUGIN 1000 is built with a three module structure – standardized aft and front sections and one or two modular midsections. The midsection(s) can be configured with a wide range of payload sensors like sidescan sonar, synthetic aperture sonar, multibeam echo sounder, sub-bottom profiler, fishery sonar, laser plankton counter, etc.
The power source is a pressure tolerant lithium polymer battery providing an endurance of approximately 24 hours at four knots (speed and payload configuration dependent). The HUGIN 1000 battery is designed to be air freightable and the vehicle can be delivered with special containers for convenient transportation and mobilization.
