The HERMES C3 (Command, Control and Communications) system provides convenient connection to ecoSUB AUVs via Wi-Fi, 3G/4G cellular, or Iridium SATCOM, allowing users to operate their vehicles from anywhere in the world.

The portable unit is enclosed within a rugged watertight case with an internal rechargeable battery, and connects to the control PC running the ecoSUB GUI software. With the addition of acoustic telemetry, it can also be used as an LBL (long baseline) surface node for enhanced vehicle navigation and positioning.
