Bayonet Ocean Vehicles, a leading developer of rugged amphibious robots designed for operations in challenging marine environments, has partnered with Unmanned Systems Technology (“UST”) to demonstrate their expertise in this field. The ‘Platinum’ profile highlights how their underwater crawler vehicles can be used for a wide range of military, commercial and industrial applications.

autonomous amphibious robotsBayonet’s highly versatile unmanned amphibious vehicles can traverse land and the seabed, with the ability to reach depths down to 300 metres. The subsea crawler robots feature three modes of operation – fully autonomous, tethered, or via RF link buoy.

Thanks to their extremely low profile and high stability, the crawler robotic vehicles can operate in the surf zone and survive waves up to 6ft in height. The low power draw allows them to provide a static continuous observation capability for up to 100 days.

All Bayonet underwater robots can be equipped with a variety of field-swappable payloads, and the company can also integrate custom and third party sensors for you. Crawler robots can also be equipped with a towable non-metallic sled that provides additional space for payloads as well as AUV delivery systems and extra power sources. Possible payload integrations include:

  • Search and rescue robotSide scan and multibeam sonar
  • Video and photographic cameras
  • Magnetometers
  • Acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCP)
  • CTD (conductivity, temperature, and depth) sensors
  • Dissolved oxygen probes
  • Water sampling equipment

bayonet-250 subsea crawler robotBayonet’s robotic crawlers are available in three sizes to suit a range of mission and payload requirements. All three Bayonet robotic vehicles are also available in a heavy-duty configuration with extra torque and power for enhanced durability and payload capacity.
