Description

M40 autonomous survey boat is medium size platform designed for hydrographic survey in coastal area and oceans. With modular catamaran design and flexible payload for instruments, M40 is expected to deliver high quality survey performance with multi beam sonar and different kinds of hydrographic and monitoring instruments in ocean.

The dimension of M40 unmanned surface vehicle is 3.3*1.9*2.2m, weights 450kg, bears 60kgs payload capability, made of aluminum and carbon fiber materials suitable for high salinity seawater, and anti-corrosive.

Catamaran hull design greatly enhance sailing stability, enabling top survey speed of 4m/s, endurance of 6 hours.

The USV has excellent cruise ability with autonomous navigation and intelligent obstacle avoidance functions to fit itself in large-scale inshore mapping; its 60KG payload capability allows it to carry single beam, multi beam, forward looking sonar, RDI ADCP and water quality probe  to be a multi- purposed unmanned ship for oceanographic survey in deep ocean.

A portable base station is necessary in order to simplify the operation of this vehicle. It is able to receive various telemetric data of USV; the mapping equipment through wireless communication system allows operator to learn the status of mission completion, the attitude of the unmanned vessel. Its compact and lightweight hull allows only one operator to handle all the operation by using the designed base station.

The base station plays an important roles in mission planning, procedure programming, monitoring the real-time working status, receiving real- time data transmission with 2km data telemetry, 2km video transmission and5km navigation control as well as monitoring measurement data and mission completion of USV, receiving real-time multi-angel video, data storage and management.

In addition to the main base station, necessary accessories also include handled terminal controller used to operate the unmanned boat manually in short distance covered within 2km communication range which is portable and easy to change between auto and manual mode.
