The Trident USV™ is a remote platform purpose-built for multibeam hydrographic surveys. This trimaran collects high resolution depth data via remote control or preplanned autonomous routes, and reaches areas inaccessible by larger survey vessels.


The sonar bay of the center hull allows for flexible integration of various compact multibeam systems, and the outriggers detach for one-person transport. Extend the capabilities and flexibility of your surveys with the Trident USV.

Applications: Inspection / survey of steeply-banked rivers & lakes, dredge ponds, sewage treatment plants, confined waters.
