Description

The HyDrone™ is a one-person 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.
