SEA2001

The HyDrone-RCV is a hand-portable, remotely controlled catamaran platform developed for bathymetric survey applications. Working in conjunction with the HydroLite-TM portable echosounder kit, the HyDrone-RCV accomplishes the same results as more expensive RC survey systems. The lightweight, wide profile and watertight construction provide stability, ruggedness and portability. It is manufactured from high quality marine materials and components and easily disassembles for transport and shipping.

Work environments include mines, sewage treatment plants, contaminated lakes, harbors and rivers. Remote control access of the survey boat is easy using a high-power remote control system that offers up to 2 km range, with a survey endurance of over four miles on a single battery pack.

The Hydrone-RCV has been featured in POB, Professional Surveyor (now XyHt) and GIM.
