HydroBoat 990

The HydroBoat 990 is a versatile bathymetric and hydrographic survey platform designed to be launched and operated by just one person. With a built-in GNSS receiver, single-beam echosounder and inertial navigation system, it delivers high-precision surveying capabilities with enhanced efficiency.

The IP67-rated USV features a hovering function that allows it to remain in place in flowing water, and also includes a millimeter wave radar-based obstacle avoidance system for superior protection and performance in the field.

The system comes with an Android-based handheld controller with SatLab’s SLHydro USV software pre-installed, enabling mission planning, project creation, waypoint setting and real-time data acquisition.
