HyDrone-RCV: Integrated with SonTek’s M9 ADCP for Surveying a Glacier

El Dorado Hills, California, September 14, 2015 – Seafloor Systems is pleased to announce the collaboration with SonTek/Xylem for integration of the HyDrone-RCV with a SonTek® M9 ADCP (acoustic Doppler current profiler).

Two integrated HyDrone catamaran platform systems were shipped last week to IMAX videographer Sean Casey, who will return to Alaska for a month-long filming of Dawes glacier. Casey is producing an IMAX documentary for National Geographic called “Extreme Weather”. One of the film’s main sequence follows a glaciologist to Alaska where she and her team collect data on: the amount of ice and water that is being ejected from a glacier; track the speed of which it is melting; and determine how much water the glacier is adding to the ocean.

The HyDrone–RCV system—released in June 2014—is a remotely controlled multi-purpose vessel that was designed to survey in uncertain environmental conditions and may be specified to individual customer requirements. The unit may be purchased with the desired depth sounder pre-installed, as an integrated total solution, or supplied ready to accept existing equipment from the user's survey pool.
