The OTTER Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) is system for seabed mapping and monitoring of sheltered waters. The USV has electric propulsion and an integrated bathymetric survey system for surveys in waters such as smaller lakes, canals, rivers, ponds and harbour areas. Bathymetric surveys allow us to measure the depth of a water body as well as map the underwater features of a water body.

Overview

The USV has electric propulsion and an integrated bathymetric survey system for surveys in waters such as smaller lakes, canals, rivers, ponds and harbour areas. Bathymetric surveys allow us to measure the depth of a water body as well as map the underwater features of a water body.  

The autonomous future is electric, and the OTTER is equipped with electric thrusters that are powered by 4 powerful, interchangeable battery packs. The battery solution is built upon off the shelf components, providing access to spare parts locally.

The vehicle Control Station (VCS) allows the surveyor to plan the missions in a maritime chart based Graphical User Interface and also monitor the mission and the data acquisition quality while the USV is underway.
