Autonomous Surface VesselThe SB100 Pro is a multipurpose small USV platform designed to carry out a variety of marine data collection tasks, including hydrography, bathymetry, water quality inspection, and more. The compact vessel is easy to deploy and recover, and can be transported in a car or small van.

Requiring just a single operator, the platform can carry out missions autonomously or via remote control, and is ideal for accessing confined or high-risk areas. The SB100 Pro can be equipped with a wide range of payloads, including single- and multi-beam echosounders, side-scan sonars, LIDAR scanners and ADCPs.

Small USV for water surface cleaningThe SB100 Pro survey USV includes a rugged ground station for payload operation based around a Microsoft Surface Pro tablet, as well as a lightweight handheld controller for vessel piloting.

The SB100 Cleaner is a highly effective remotely piloted or autonomous boat for water surface cleaning in lakes, harbours, marinas, reservoirs and industrial facilities. Equipped with a high-capacity cleaning system, the uncrewed surface vessel is capable of removing floating solid waste as well as hydrocarbon spills.

This lightweight, small USV requires just a single operator and can be easily transported in a car or compact van. The system includes a handheld touchscreen controller for piloting the vessel as well as receiving a low-latency HD video stream from the onboard FPV camera.
