Eelume-S is the new All-Terrain Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) from subsea technology producer Eeulme, and is projected to transform undersea operations using Voyis and Wavefront Systems integrated technology.

Traditionally, AUVs have been limited in their accessibility to underwater environments. Eelume-S overcomes these barriers, offering versatility and sustainability in exploring previously inaccessible environments.

Key Features of Eelume-S:  

Autonomous Operation & All-Terrain Mapping

Whether fully or semi-autonomous, Eelume-S facilitates goal-based mission planning and in-mission data processing. 

With 360 degrees of freedom in roll and pitch, Eelume-S enables safe and sustainable exploration even in challenging underwater terrains. 

Unlike conventional AUVs, the Eelume-S’ agile maneuverability expands its use cases for exploration, inspection and monitoring of critical and complex under­water environments. 

Close Proximity Imaging & Ultra-High-Quality Visual and Bathymetric Mapping

By leveraging the Voyis Observer Micro, the Eelume-S offers unparalleled capabilities in capturing 3D photogrammetry and photomosaic of underwater environments and structures through its ability to track along hilly and inclined seabed with fixed altitude down to 1m. 

The Voyis Observer Micro Imaging System is a 4K still image acquisition system with LED panels providing up to 480.000 lumens of light. 

This results in crystal-clear optical imagery, with onboard image light leveling and color correction, bringing autonomous ocean exploration to new heights.  

Additionally, the Wavefront Solstice Multi-Aperture Sonar enables Eelume-S to carry out leading bathymetric mapping, with 200m swath and resolution down to 3cm. 

Easy Operation & Portability

Designed for user-friendliness, Eelume-S simplifies mission planning and execution, allowing users to focus on discoveries.  

With sizes ranging from 45 to 75 kg, Eelume-S units are easily deployable, even from small vessels or directly from shore.  

Eelume state that the Eelume-S is poised to transform the landscape of underwater exploration, offering a cost-effective solution that enhances understanding of oceanic spaces while mitigating risks and reducing carbon emissions associated with data collection endeavors. 

“Our commitment to advancing oceanic exploration while minimizing environmental impact has led us to develop the Eelume-S series,” added Thomas Nygaard, CEO of Eelume. 

“With its ultra-high-quality data capture, superior maneuverability and easy operation, Eelume-S empowers researchers, scientists, and marine enthusiasts to delve deeper into the mysteries of the ocean.”
