Unmanned Underwater Vehicles

By: Marport  09-12-2011

Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUV) extend our ability to explore the deep sea, much in the same way that the planetary rovers have enhanced our understanding of outer space. UUVs are now becoming cost-effective tools in applications ranging from deep-water survey for the offshore oil and gas industry to military operations. The need for increased ocean observation offers great potential for UUVs to enhance the performance of conventional ship-based operations, as well as the ability to operate in difficult-to-access areas such as below the Arctic ice.

Product Sensors

The acoustic signals are decoded and converted into digital data that is transmitted to a bridge computer for graphical display. The sensors take various underwater measurements and transmit the information back to the vessel via a wireless signal. Data is transmitted from the sensor using wireless acoustic telemetry and is received by a hull mounted hydrophone.
