The Perfect INS for USV-based Bathymetry
Like most unmanned systems, USVs have space and power constraints. Ekinox-D is the best INS to be integrated into this type of vehicle. Weighing less than 600 grams and low power (<7W), the Ekinox-D INS integrates an RTK dual antenna GNSS receiver for a centimeter-level position. It provides a 0.05° attitude while delivering a 5 cm real-time heave that automatically adjusts to the wave period.
USV with Swath Bathymetry Sonar
SPYBOAT® Swan is an Unmanned Surface Vessel (USV) fully equipped for hydrographic operations in shallow waters. It is remotely controlled by an operator staying on shore, up to one kilometer away from the USV. Swan conducts bathymetric surveys in areas where vessels cannot navigate such as riverbed, lake, reservoir, dam or harbor. Equipped with a Bathyswath 2, a swath bathymetry sonar, the USV provides bathymetric and navigation information in real-time to the operator’s tablet PC. Swan is compatible with all hydrographic software.
