ME 40 Autonomous Survey Boat (USV)

Categories: ,

Description

Perfect for the Enterprise and Maritime industries, the ME40 autonomous survey boat serves as your one-stop hydrographic surveying solution as an unmanned surface vehicle (USV).

Complete water surveying with rapid installation using an acoustic doppler current profiler (ADCP) and the accompanying echosounder. The ADCP is a hydroacoustic current meter similar to a sonar, used to measure water current velocities over a depth range using the Doppler effect of sound waves scattered back from particles within the water column.

Instruments, like ADCPs, echosounders and side scan sonars, with diameter of 5 cm to 18 cm can be rapidly installed to the dedicated cabin on the USV.

Stay On Target With Automatic Mission Planning:

·         Operators can pre-program the survey mission with the base station on the bank. The USV and instruments can conduct surveys autonomously and send back real-time data.
·         Operators can also drive the USV manually by a remote controller.

Intelligent collision avoidance

·         With ultrasonic sensors, the ME40 USV can detect and bypass obstacles 10 meters ahead to avoid collision.

·         In manual mode, user can observe water environment by the real-time video feed to better avoid obstacles.

The ME40 brings higher speed and less maintenance — a plug-and-play design, the high-speed outboard propellers are easy to maintain for all future missions.
