Unmanned Science Yields Pioneering Ocean Discoveries

Unmanned vehicle technology, once considered a scientific experiment itself, is now a reliable tool for researchers to conduct scientific experiments and gain knowledge in ways that were previously unavailable. The outcome is often faster and more efficient data collection, saving operators both time and money. Confidence inand adoption of the technology in many markets including defense, security, aquaculture, offshore energy, hydrography, and oceanographic research, continue to increase as the technology matures.

Sensor Suites and Our Engineering Challenge

Whether it is an ASV, AUV, ROV or indeed a sea mammal such as a seal or dolphin, all instrumented vehicle types need various sensors to meet and maintain design criteria or operational demands. The challenge for us as manufacturers is to match those demands with sensor designs and packages that meet varying specifications of size, weight, material, depth, power constraints and budgets without making each requirement a “one off” (as there are of course additional cost and time implications associated with a ‘one off’).
