REMUS 6000 - the deepest member of Hydroid's growing family of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles - AUVs!

Remus 6000 AUV - Autonomous Underwater Vehicle
The REMUS 6000 a versatile Autonomous Underwater Vehicle depth rated to 6000 meters

The REMUS 6000 AUV was designed under a cooperative program involving the Naval Oceanographic Office, the Office of Naval Research, and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution - WHOI, in support of deep-water autonomous operations. The REMUS 6000 AUV boasts the same proven software and electronic subsystems found in our highly successful REMUS 100 AUV, with a depth rating, endurance, and payload that allow for autonomous operations in up to 6000 meters of water.

REMUS 6000 features

  • LITTORAL TO DEEP OPERATIONS - The versatile REMUS 6000 AUV has been designed to operate in depths ranging from 25 meters to 6000 meters, allowing for a wide spectrum of autonomous operations. Both 4000 and 6000 meters rated configurations are available.
  • CUSTOM DESIGN - The REMUS 6000 can be configured to include a wide array of customer specified sensors depending upon mission requirements. This workhorse provides ample space and power for the most challenging applications.
  • EASE OF OPERATION - The REMUS 6000 operates using the same proven Vehicle Interface Program - VIP as the popular REMUS 100 AUV. The highly refined Graphical User Interface - GUI makes vehicle maintenance and checkout, mission planning, and data analysis fast and easy.
  • PROVEN LAUNCH AND RECOVERY SYSTEM (LARS) – The REMUS 6000 launch and recovery system is designed to function off the stern of a ship and can be set up for shipboard operations within a few hours. The LARS is based on another operational system, designed by WHOI, which has completed over 1000 launch and recovery operations at sea.
  • PROVEN REMUS TECHNOLOGY - The REMUS 6000 is based on the same leading edge technology that has brought the REMUS 100 to the forefront of autonomous operations. With tens of thousands of REMUS 100 mission hours to date, Hydroid has become the industry's leading supplier of autonomous products and technology.
