The SeaPILOT 300 kHz, 600 kHz, and 1200 kHz models are Rowe Technology’s most versatile DVLs. They use Rowe’s acoustic Doppler Piston (DP) technology and are well-suited for navigation applications in shallow water or in deep water, down to 6000M. The SeaPILOT’s compact size, extended range, and precision make it an ideal solution for ROVs, AUVs, and other submersible platforms.

SeaPILOT comes in 3 different frequencies (300 kHz, 600 kHz, and 1200 kHz), all configured with Doppler Piston transducers, and available in different depth package options.

The SeaPILOT OEM 300 kHz and 600 kHz models are available as an OEM configuration. They offer the same outstanding performance as the standard DVL package, but meet custom packaging requirements as found in small AUVs and submersibles.

SeaPILOT OEM consists of an electronics board stack and four Doppler Piston transducers). Doppler Piston transducers are manufactured as separate elements and are not potted into the AUV housing. This facilitates easy installation and repair (6-inch AUV housing shown with machined “pockets” for the transducers).
