Teledyne RD Instruments’ DVL for Riptide’s Micro UUV
Teledyne RD Instruments (TRDI) will supply 600 kHz Pathfinder Doppler Velocity Log (DVL) to provide precision navigation capability for Riptide’s Micro UUV for a recent order for the US Navy.
Riptide’s Micro UUV provides users with an affordable platform suited for new autonomy, power system, subsea sensor, and payload development.
Bill Key, sales director for Riptide said, “Our team selected Teledyne RDI’s Pathfinder DVL because it’s the smallest DVL, delivering the highest performance. This unit, coupled with our iXblue INS, will deliver a 200% increase in navigation performance with a minimal impact on vehicle endurance. Teledyne RDI’s vast experience with DVL technology played a key role in selecting the Pathfinder. It’s great to have a vendor that’s also a true partner in ensuring that our customers receive an optimal solution.”
