OceanServer’s Iver3 AUV for US Naval Undersea Warfare Center
OceanServer Technology, Inc. has recently been awarded a contract for one Iver3 AUV by the US Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) in Newport, RI. This system will include several Iver3 options just released including the Rowe Technologies, Inc. (RTI) SeaPILOT 600 kHz Doppler Velocity Log with ADCP.
The RTI’s SeaPILOT family of Doppler Velocity Logs (DVLs) represents some of the industry’s newest and state of the art acoustic Doppler technology.
The compact form factor and powerful electronics provide a versatile platform capable of producing precise bottom referenced velocity and/or current profile measurements for ROVs, AUVs, and other manned/unmanned submersibles.
For vehicle navigation applications that require a custom fit like the Iver3, RTI provided four individual piston transducers along with compact electronics to facilitate repackaging into the AUV.
OceanServer designs and manufactures a feature-rich family of low cost Iver AUVs utilized for coastal applications such as general survey work, sub-surface security, environmental monitoring, behavioral research and sensor development by both academia and military organizations.
The latest generation of Iver3 AUVs will offer two different RTI DVL units in 600 kHz and 1200 kHz configurations.
