HydroBoat 1500

The HydroBoat 1500 USV is designed to carry out efficient underwater topographical surveying of lakes, rivers, reservoirs and other bodies of water. With a payload capacity of 60 kg and driven by four powerful thrusters, it is ideal for equipping with the SatLab HydroBeam M4 portable multibeam echosounder, as well as a variety of other payloads such as side scan sonars and ADCPs.

The robust vessel is IP67-rated for maximum durability, and includes a millimeter-wave radar and 360° omnidirectional camera for accurate obstacle detection and safe navigation. It is equipped with a high-precision GNSS receiver and IMU as well as a dual RF and 4G cellular communications system, allowing it to be operated at effectively unlimited range.
