Seafloor Systems Introduces Its EchoBoat-G2 Survey Boat for Inspection, Asset Protection and SAR Surveys

Shingle Springs, California, February 2, 2017—Seafloor Systems, Incorporated, a provider of customized hydrographic mapping solutions for the Survey and Civil Engineering communities, has designed the EchoBoat-G2™ Unmanned Survey Vessel (USV) that can execute survey missions via remote control or semi-autonomous, utilizing our modified Mission Planner Drone software. With our AutoNav™ auto pilot module, the operator can pre-plan survey waypoints, upload via RF to the vehicle, and the EchoBoat drone will automatically execute the mission, going from waypoint to waypoint, then return to base.

Government and private organizations can inspect, secure, and maintain harbors worldwide with the EchoBoat-G2 USV integrated with a Sidescan Sonar, Multibeam sonar system, or real-time 2D/3D imaging sonar. Conventional survey boats are expensive to maintain, operate, and often have limited access to specific areas of interest. With the EchoBoat- G2™ it is now possible for Harbor Patrol and Port Police to run regular surveys, impromptu post-storm/event debris mapping, or routine inspection survey missions—all via remote control and Laptop on the dock.

Port and harbor management can efficiently and reliably search for sunken vessels, lost tools, objects, and debris, on the bottom. The search for objects, threats, and contraband, attached to walls or vessels, can be located easier and more safely, with the EchoBoat Unmanned Survey Vessel.

The lightweight, portable, multi-payload vehicle comes with lifetime support. It is made from quality non-corrosive materials and includes efficient dual-DC thrusters and an internal plug-and-play survey deck to seamlessly install a variety of sonar and navigational monitoring equipment. The design offers ease of control, flexibility, and repeatability—allowing Harbor and Port personnel to collect and analyze important data to ensure the safety and security of harbors and ports in their region.
