Over Horizon Bathymetric Survey
During October & November XOCEAN successfully completed demonstrations of our USV’s over the horizon bathymetric survey capability. Surveys were performed in Carlingford Lough and the Irish Sea, controlled over a satellite internet connection by a team of trained USV Pilots in XOCEAN’s operations centre. XOCEAN’s XO-450 has been demonstrated to be a robust platform for multibeam echo sounder surveys.
XOCEAN have published a White Paper in partnership with Kongsberg Maritime and Valeport detailing the integration, operation and results from our recent bathymetric survey demonstrations.
