Seafloor Systems: Echoboat 160
The EchoBoat-160 USV is a purpose-built remote survey platform for hydrographic data collection. With true one-switch startup, the nimble vessel accomplishes the same results demanded of large,
crewed boats more efficiently and at a fraction of the cost. Like its renowned predecessors, the fifth generation EchoBoat-160 integrates professional-grade sensor suites in a compact package
to navigate challenging bodies of water by remote control or autonomous wayfinding. Perform hydrographic surveys remotely, safely, and confidently with this meticulously engineered uncrewed
With an integrated INS and a sound velocity sensor, the Seafloor SeaRay is a multibeam echosounder developed for use on small USV’s. With a swath coverage of up to 130 degrees, 256 receive beams of 1.45 x 1 degree beam width, the SeaRAY is a very capable survey tool in a small package.
