New-generation AUV features platform for advanced autonomy
Hydroid Inc., a subsidiary of Kongsberg Maritime, announced that it successfully completed the first delivery of the new-generation REMUS 100 autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) to the Naval Oceanographic Office.
"This is an exciting time for unmanned underwater technology, and we are proud to play a major role in the market with our REMUS line of AUVs," said Duane Fotheringham, President of Hydroid. "The evolution of the REMUS 100 is a testament to the sustainability and longevity of our AUVs and our ability to maintain our core offering, while also integrating the latest, cutting-edge technologies."
The new-generation REMUS 100 AUV features technology and capabilities that are designed to enable customers to have increased autonomy and capability during missions. Designed based on the feedback from the AUV community, it combines elements of the original REMUS 100 AUV with new features and capabilities, such as advanced core electronics, a flexible navigation suite with an exclusive conformal Doppler velocity log (DVL), and an open architecture platform for advanced autonomy.
