Description

The Osprey AUV builds upon the Gavia the world's first truly open and modular AUV.  The Osprey AUV has a 324 mm diameter in order to carry additional energy allowing for extended operational endurances in excess of 24 hours (configuration dependent)  while maintaining the same 1000 meter depth rating of the proven Gavia design.  Added features include an efficient rim drive thruster, external data pod, increased capacity battery modules, science bay, obstacle avoidance and forward looking sonar nose, and customizable payloads. 

The Osprey also has an optional Attitude, Depth, & Heading (ADH) module for operations in complex and high current environments based on the successful buoyancy engine of the Slocum Glider coupled with a fin controller.  Combined with a Synthetic Aperture Sonar, the Osprey elevates itself over the competition for data quality and consistency.

Teledyne QuickLock Mechanism and Teledyne Vehicle Bus

The modular mechanical, electrical, and network interfaces enable easy sharing, swapping, replacement, and new technology insertion within all components. The Teledyne QuickLock Mechanism is a high strength interlock that joins the modules and maintains water-tight integrity. Mechanical/electrical blind-mating, proven in the Gavia AUV, facilitates rapid vehicle assembly/disassembly, and repair. ​

Modularity

The Osprey AUV is comprised of five basic module types (Propulsion Module; Control Module; Battery Modules; Payload Module; and Nose Module)  and an optional Attitude, Depth, and Heading (ADH) Module.  Each module is portable, and once connected, is discoverable (including sensors), and extendable.

Navigation

The Osprey AUV combines a high-accuracy survey-grade INS with Teledyne RD Instruments DVL aiding for navigation.  Multiple DVL options are available providing bottom lock up to 850 meters.  Further positioning accuracy can be maintained over longer duration deployments by utilizing Ultra Short Baseline (USBL) or ranging to bottom-moored Long Baseline (LBL) transponders (optional)

Autonomy

Whether MOOS-IvP or ROS, we have you covered!  Mission planning tools allow the Osprey AUV to hand over control to customize the job-to-be-done.

Customizable Payload

The vehicle can be customized to include multiple optional sensors including,

  • Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS)
  • Multi-Beam Echo Sounder (MBES)
  • Side scan sonar (SSS)
  • Sub bottom profiler (SBP)
  • High resolution camera, laser scanning, and strobes

 

Emergency Systems

Redundant emergency systems provide extra recovery options both below the water and on the surface including a drop weight, acoustic pinger, and Iridium beacon.

Software

Software is based on the proven software used for over a decade with the standard Gavia AUV with Control Center and Crew Members.
