The EchoBoat-160™ USV is a purpose-built remote survey platform for hydrographic data collection. With true one-button 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.
The EchoBoat™ is an unmanned surface vehicle developed for hydrographic survey applications. This is a highly portable survey platform featuring multi-payload capacity, both manual andautonomous control, and swapable sensor suites. While underway, the vehicle can be monitored within line-of-sight range, with over the horizon monitoring possible when running additional hardware. All data is stored via an onboard PC with a direct cable connection. Full equipment contol and data QA/QC is accomplished with a remote data link. Switching from autonomous to remote control on the survey boat is easy using a long range remote control unit (RCU) that offers up to 2km range, with a survey endurance of over eight hours on a single battery bank. For professional hydrographic survey requirements, the EchoBoat-160™ may be tailored to individual customer requirements. The boat may be purchased with the desired depth sounder pre-installed, or supplied ready to accept existing equipment from the user’s survey pool. Similarly, customized cabling can be included allowing the boat to accept existing GPS, GNSS and RTK positioning systems. For a turnkey survey-grade system, the EchoBoat-160™ can be outfitted with singlebeam, multibeam and side scan sonar systems. The EchoBoat™ is compatible with hydrographic data acquisition software such as Hypack, PDS2000, EIVA and QINSy.
