ME120 Hydrographic Unmanned Survey Vessel

The ME120 is designed for autonomous hydrographic and oceanographic surveys. Featuring autonomous navigation and intelligent obstacle avoidance, the ME120 USV can undertake autonomous surveys providing real-time data transmission with long distance video monitoring.

The convertible catamaran design can be easily assembled and disassembled, and transported by van. Compatible with small multibeam sonars, as well as other survey instruments, operators can change and install different instruments quickly during a survey.

Hydrographic Unmanned Survey Vessel
① Quick assembly and easy transportation

The ME120 utilizes a detachable catamaran design, making it easy for van transportation and for two people to assemble and disassemble.

② Dedicated for small-size multibeam sonars

The ME120 USV is dedicated to multibeam sonars, side scan sonars, and other survey instruments of a relatively smaller size.

  • Singlebeam echo sounder
  • Multibeam echo sounder
  • ADCP
  • 3D LiDAR scanner
  • Side-scan sonar
  • Forward-looking sonar
  • Water quality sonde
③ Replaceable equipment cabin

The payload cabin of the ME120 USV is replaceable, user can freely change and install different instruments according to mission requirements.

④ Automatic mission planning
  • User can pre-program the survey mission with the base station on the bank. The USV and instruments can conduct surveys autonomously and send back real-time data. · User can also drive the USV manually by a remote controller.
⑤ Intelligent collision avoidance
  • The ME120 USV comes with ultrasonic sensors that can detect obstacles 40 meters ahead to avoid collision when in auto-pilot mode.
  • Operators can observe the water environment through a real-time video feed to better avoid obstacles when operating in manual mode.
