Description

  • LIGHTWEIGHT FOR EASY DEPLOYMENT

Allow two operators to cope with most of the remote deployment conditions

Made of macromolecule polyester carbon fiber and Kevlar fiber-glass weighing 15 kg without sensors.

 

  • HIGH-PERFORMANCE TRIPLE-HULLED VESSEL DESIGN

Versatile USV solution for offshore, coastal and inland water and lakes surveys

Its dual detachable floating bodies keep the hull balanced even in the rapid current situation. Removing the floating bodies allows operation in shoals, channels and shallow rivers without run aground.

 

  • OPTIMIZED FOR NORBIT MULTIBEAM ECHO SOUNDERS

High-end turnkey multibeam USV solution for high-resolution bathymetry

APACHE 6 design is optimized for the NORBIT iWBMSe, iWBMS, and iWBMSh-STX series offering high-end performances to match the most demanding hydrographic survey requirements.

 

  • OPTIONAL TERRESTRIAL MAPPING LASER SENSOR

Collect up to 300 000 points per second at a 30 x 360-degree coverage

The optional NORBIT iLiDAR mapping sensor provides a high-accuracy combined marine and terrestrial 3D survey in a single pass saving significant processing time when performing harbor and river surveys with height clearance evaluation.

 

The APACHE6 USV is a full-integrated innovative solution for 3D bathymetric survey, underwater object positioning, offshore construction, underwater archaeology, and wrecked rescue. The APACHE6 is powered by a high-performance dual propeller system ensuring a stable constant automatic cruise speed of up to 2.5m/s (7.6 fps). The survey projects can also be completed in manual mode using the APACHE6 remote control panel over a 2 km distance.

The APACHE6 multibeam USV reduces survey time, improves work efficiency, and outputs high-resolution data to always match the most demanding marine survey project requirements.
