Description

The HyDrone™ is a one-man portable, catamaran platform

developed for hydrographic survey applications. Working in

conjunction with the HydroLite™ portable echosounder kit, the

HyDrone™ accomplishes the same results as more expensive

RC survey systems. The lightweight, wide profile and watertight

construction provide stability, ruggedness and portability. It is

manufactured from high quality marine materials and components

and easily disassembles for transport and shipping.

Work environments include mines, sewage treatment plants,

lakes, settlement ponds, harbors and rivers.

Remote control of 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 8 hours at a survey speed of 3 knots

on a single battery bank.

With our AutoNav option, the HyDrone™ is also semi autonomous;

the vehicle can be monitored while under way, in both Auto and

Manual modes.

The mission planner app runs on a base station laptop connected

through a radio telemetry link, and displays the vehicle’s geographical

position and progress in real time against a background map of

the survey area. Battery, voltage, current, and capacity remaining is

monitored via this link.
