Acoustics Specialist Unveils its Latest Versatile Micro- AUV - 09/07/2019


After years of development, French Acoustics specialist RTSYS unveils its latest versatile micro- AUV named NemoSens. 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, side-scan sonar or any other sensors, the company states. Thanks to an open LINUX architecture it can be programmed 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 flexible and will perfectly fulfill numerous civil applications such as seabed imagery, environmental monitoring or wreckage localization. More information: abetbeze@rtsys.fr
