Autonomous underwater vehicle for survey & inspection

Hydrus AUV

Miniature autonomous underwater vehicle with 4K video capabilities

Hydrusminiature autonomous underwater vehicle is a highly compact and portable AUV that has been designed specifically to capture high-resolution underwater images and video combined with precise geo-referenced data. It features a 4K 60 FPS camera coupled with powerful lighting, and utilizes tightly coupled USBL, DVL and INS sensors as well as acoustic and optical modems.

Capable of operating down to 3000 metres, Hydrus is ideal for surveying, inspection, environmental monitoring, oil and gas applications, and more.
