Teledyne Marine is a group of cutting-edge, industry-leading developers of autonomous and unmanned marine vehicles for demanding subsea and shallow-water environments. Our Marine ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicles), AUV (Autonomous Unmanned Vehicles) and USV (Unmanned Surface Vehicles) provide state-of-the-art solutions for challenging applications such as oceanography, defense and security, and oil and gas inspection and surveying.
Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV)
SeaBotix Marine ROV for inspections, search and recovery
Teledyne SeaBotix’ observation- and inspection-class Marine ROV are compact and lightweight with the power to navigate strong currents. The highly flexible systems feature modular designs that enable all major components, such as thrusters, lights, electronics bottle, and flotation, to be quickly and easily removed or replaced. A wide variety of sensors, cameras and payloads can be fielded on the vehicles, providing multi-mission functionality.
Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV)
Gavia AUV for surveys, inspections and research
Gavia – modular AUV for research, commercial and defense applications
The Gavia is a modular, low-logistics AUV with field-swappable plug-and-play modules rated to 500 or 1000m. The standard base configuration includes nose, battery, control and propulsion modules, with additional capabilities including sonar, cameras, inertial navigation and environmental sensors.
This flexible, easily reconfigurable solution, offering true multi-mission capability, can operate from a wide variety of vessels of opportunity. It is an ideal and cost-effective platform for commercial surveying, scientific and environmental research, mine countermeasures, search and rescue and more.

SeaRaptor – deep water AUV with flexible sensor integration
The SeaRaptor is a survey-grade deep water AUV featuring modular payload ports for field-swappable sensors. The autonomous underwater vehicle can also be customised to fit additional instruments such as side scan sonars, echo sounders, sub-bottom profilers and cameras. Redundant emergency systems provide extra recovery options both below the water and on the surface.
Rated to 3000 or 6000m, the SeaRaptor can undertake a wide range of missions, including oceanography, marine archaeology, search and recovery, salvage and construction support.

Autonomous & Unmanned Surface Vehicles
USVs for hydrographic surveys and monitoring
Teledyne Oceanscience Z-Boats are remotely operated survey vessels designed specifically for the hydrographic surveyor. With rugged IP67-rated designs and easy setup, Z-Boats provide ultra-reliable survey capabilities even in the most challenging of conditions.
Q-Boats provide a reliable and convenient remotely controlled platform for the deployment of all major acoustic Doppler current profilers. They are ideal for river velocity profiling, discharge monitoring, and other ADCP applications in rivers, streams, lakes and coastal areas worldwide.
Trimaran Hydrologic Tethered Boats for ADCP Measurements
Based around a rugged trimaran design, our hydrologic tethered boats provide a highly stable platform for the deployment of acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCPs). Offering unmatched environmental data quality, these tethered boats are deployed by hydrographers and hydrologists around the world, and can be equipped with a range of radio communications and GPS positioning instruments or customized to deploy depth sounders.
Towed vehicles for deep water applications
6000m Deep Tow Vehicle
The TTV-190 Deep Tow vehicle is designed for data collection in deep water environments down to 6000m. Standard configuration includes an acoustic release, locator beacon, and xenon flasher, and custom sensors such as side scan and multi-beam sonars, sub bottom profilers and navigational systems can easily be fitted. The system is ideal for deep water survey applications, deep sea floor habitat mapping, oil and gas route surveying and hazard inspection, and more.
