DRDC Acquires Iver3 AUV
OceanServer Technology has received an order for an Iver3-580 EP system from Canada Public Works and Government Services for delivery to the Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC).
The Iver3 AUV will be used to augment existing autonomous systems and provide a platform to continue R&D in underwater research at DRDC Atlantic.
DRDC will have access to Iver’s mature hardware and software interfaces to further studies in various adaptive behavior “autonomy software” architectures, the company said.
The vehicle will be equipped with an INS for accurate navigation along with the Klein 3500 Side Scan and Bathy system for imaging and mapping the seafloor.
