HyDrone™

The HyDrone™ is a one-man portable catamaran platform developed for hydrographic survey applications. It has a light-weight, wide profile and watertight construction to provide stability and ruggedness. And, with the addition of the dependable HydroLite-TM portable echosounder kit, the HyDrone™ accomplishes the same results as more expensive remotely controlled survey systems. The HyDrone™ is made from professional grade, water-tight marine components and readily disassembles for ease of transport.

Applications: Inspection / survey of mines, sewage treatment plants, contaminated lakes, and rivers. *Both remotely controlled and autonomous navigation suites available.
