Autonomous Surface and Sub-surface Survey System Trials in Loch Ness

ASV Global, with partners Sonardyne International Ltd, the National Oceanography Centre and SeeByte Ltd., have completed a number of trials in and on the Loch Ness, as part of the three-year Autonomous Surface and Sub-surface Survey System (ASSSS) collaborative project.

During the demonstrations, Sonardyne’s USBL acoustic positioning and AvTrak telemetry systems were used to enable ASV Global’s C-Worker 5 unmanned surface vessel (USV) to locate, track, and command and control the NOC’s Autosub Long Range (ALR) unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV).

This video explores the tracking and communications technology that was used during the trials.
