Located in the US and a subsidiary of Kongsberg Maritime, Hydroid, Inc. is a trusted science and technology leader in the field of advanced Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs). The company designs, manufactures and markets state of the art AUVs for use in marine research, defence, hydrographic, offshore energy markets, harbour security, environmental monitoring, fishery operations and search and salvage missions. Together, Hydroid’s REMUS and Kongsberg’s HUGIN AUVs represent the most advanced, diversified and field-proven family of AUVs and AUV support systems in the world.


REMUS AUVs can glide along the surface, dive to depths of 6,000 metres, explore shallow waters or hover in hazardous areas where navigation is difficult. These unmanned, undersea robots have reduced the high costs of ocean exploration and sampling while increasing the availability, quality and quantity of scientific marine data. REMUS AUVs involved with undersea mine reconnaissance have helped save lives by eliminating human divers from mine fields, and the customisable vehicles have helped solve plane and ship disaster mysteries (including locating wreckages such as Air France Flight 447 and generating 3D mapping of the Titanic). REMUS AUVs also offer scientists a new view on pressing global issues including climate change, the world’s declining fish population and environmental disasters.


Developed by a veteran team of engineers, the innovations of Hydroid and Kongsberg Maritime provide a safe and reliable answer to the challenges that have hampered ocean exploration and security. The company offers world-class engineering design and expert manufacturing facilities for producing state of the art undersea robots, and is dedicated to revolutionising undersea robotics technology as well as advancing oceanography and undersea engineering.

How to Use QPS' Qimera to Validate Processed Point Files

QPS Qimera processing software has been released earlier this year. To demonstrate the capabilities, this video shows how to load processed point files into a Qimera Project. It explains what processed point files are; how to specify the coordinate system of the project and the source files; how to create a Dynamic Surface from processed point files and how to change the dynamic surface and adjust the colour map to aid data editing and validation.
