USVs

Seafloor has been building Unmanned Surface Vessels (USVs) for over a decade. We lead the market with dynamic platforms that extend the capabilities of traditional survey equipment, enabling surveyors to remotely analyze otherwise challenging environments. Seafloor's turn-key USV platforms integrate professional-grade technology to efficiently conduct missions on water.

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.

EchoBoat-160™

The EchoBoat-160™ is a two-man portable, autonomous platform for hydrographic survey applications. The multi-payload vessel has ample thrust & stability for choppy inland waters. In addition, the moon pool in the hull allows for interchangeable instruments. The boat may be purchased with the desired echosounder pre-installed, or supplied ready to accept existing equipment from the user's own supply. EchoBoat-160™ is made from professional grade marine components and readily disassembles for ease of transport.

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

EchoBoat-240™

EchoBoat-240™ allows users to integrate robust equipment payloads and obtain professional-grade survey results remotely. Still two-person transportable, it is ideal for launching from a trailer or cart in areas where a manned boat is not feasible. Live props reduce weed entanglement, and the SVP is encapsulated in the bow. The wave-piercing hull was designed to efficiently collect data and save time in the field. It can also be lowered via davit from a survey boat to be used as a force multiplier, working alongside the main vessel.

Applications: Inspection / survey of mines, sewage treatment plants, lakes, harbors, rivers, and in-shore areas. *Both remotely controlled and autonomous navigation suites available.

HydroCat-180™

The HydroCat-180™ is our largest USV to date, and is capable of transiting from inshore to nearshore environments whilst carrying high-resolution payloads. The HydroCat-180™ has an 18-ft (5.5 m) catamaran-style design with individually articulated hulls, a self-stabilizing deck, and dual-actuated electric motors. The vessel also contains a retractable sonar mount, SVP winch, and is capable of conducting fully-autonomous hydrographic surveys in rougher waters. Similar to other models, the onboard AutoNav™ enables for autonomous data collection for more consistent survey results.

Applications: Inspection / survey of lakes, harbors, large rivers, 

rough nearshore environments, water quality research, tidal zones.
