Marine Geology/Investigation Applications

Marine Archaeology

AUVs have revolutionized marine archaeology exploration. Thanks to AUV endurance and modularity, researchers can now investigate larger geographic areas over longer time periods than ever before. In addition, the AUV’s payload and mission flexibility allow the same vehicle to complete large-scale reconnaissance searches and high-resolution site investigations. Because the AUVs are customizable with an almost endless variety of instruments, archaeologists are guaranteed the right tool for the right mission.

Deep Sea Ecology/Seabed Investigation

Hydroid AUVs have led the world in sea bed investigation for 15 years, in part because of their ability to seamlessly integrate navigation, vehicle and sonar technologies. AUVs offer sea bed researchers the ultimate tool in efficiency and capability. The AUV can be positioned at the optimal height off the ocean floor, enabling it to gather high-resolution data that surface vessels cannot. The AUV can also operate independently, allowing the surface vessel to complete other missions simultaneously.
