RTSYS Steps Up the Pace in Micro-AUV Competition

Small (less than 1 meter long), easy to carry and launch (less than 20 pounds including payload), micro-AUV NemoSens can host any kind of payload, be it a CTD probe, sidescan sonar or any other sensors. Thanks to an open LINUX architecture it can be programed from a ROS or MOOS interface to complete various kind of missions.

Its battery provides wide autonomy (up to 8 hours at 4 knots) with speed range from 2 to 8 knots and its robustness allows it to dive over 300 meters.

Several AUV can maneuver in swarm (+10) thanks to acoustics; beacons on the surface could also be used for real-time repositioning. Navigation is accurate thanks to integrated INS along with a GPS and a flasher in the mast for smooth recovery.

Therefore, NemoSens is in every way flexible and will perfectly fulfill numerous civil applications such as seabed imagery, environmental monitoring or wreckage localization, said the company.
