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.

Bathymetry of the Western Australian Sea Floor


Bathymetry is the study and mapping of seafloor topography. It involves obtaining measurements of the depth of the ocean and is equivalent to mapping topography on land. The bathymetric survey will produce a map that charts the contours, depths and hardness of the ocean floor. The video by Geoscience Australia is not the result of the MH370 survey, but demonstrates the type of information and detail that is being gathered.
