High-resolution camera payload for AUVs

Visit Website Contact

The Recon is a high-resolution payload designed to provide simplified integration of optical imaging capabilities into high-speed AUVs. Featuring a modular design that houses all electronics and interfaces directly with the target AUV, the system utilizes an open architecture that allows a variety of third-party sensors to be added.

The integrated hydrodynamic lightbar evenly projects light across the camera’s field of view, significantly enhancing imaging capabilities. The system includes built-in light levelling and colour correction for accurate true-colour imagery.
