DESCRIPTION

Bathyswath is available as “bottle” modules for small AUVs (autonomous underwater vehicles), including Gavia and REMUS100. It is also ideal for use on ASVs (autonomous surface vehicles), such as remote-controlled survey catamarans.

AUVs provide many advantages, including operation in places that are hazardous for vessels and people, and freeing up personnel and vessels for other tasks.

The low power consumption of Bathyswath compared to similar systems means that the vehicle mission length can be much longer.

The Bathyswath AUV systems are provided with embedded computer systems for data logging, system control, and interfaces to the host vehicle via Ethernet or serial ports. Interconnecting cables and clamps are supplied where necessary.
