Dynautics Chosen as Brains Behind New Unmanned Surface Vehicle

Dynautics Ltd announces the collaboration with the USV designer, builder and operator HydroSurv Unmanned Survey (UK) Ltd. The HydroSurv™ REAV-16, due to be launched in March 2020 will utilize Dynautics’ Spectre E-Boat-T control module.

The REAV-16 is a readily portable autonomous vessel for hydrographic, geophysical and environmental surveys within inland and coastal areas. The vessel features twin steerable Torqeedo electric outboards which provide very precise slow-speed control and excellent endurance from separated 915Wh propulsion batteries. An independent service battery system consists of ‘hot-swappable’ 24vDC batteries to further improve the flexibility and integrity levels of the vehicle.

HydroSurv™ has allocated this REAV-16 to an experimental development project which will validate a specialist payload technology capable of performing combined scour monitoring and above water inspection of wind turbine foundation structures.

David Hull, HydroSurv’s, Managing Director, commented ‘We selected a Dynautics E-Boat-T system because of the ease of integration with commercial-off-the-shelf survey packages, and Dynautics proven experience of integration with Torqeedo’s proprietary control system’.

Dynautics’ CEO, Henry Robinson, commented ‘The commissioning and calibration of the system was efficiently managed over two working days from receipt of the platform to on-water acceptance testing’ and also stated ‘we wanted our customer experience to be as efficient as possible and through this level of team work and integration the end users mission will also benefit. It is another example of Dynautics’ drive to be the brains behind unmanned vessels’
