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.

Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV)

Gavia AUV for surveys, inspections and research

Gavia – modular AUV for research, commercial and defense applications

Gavia Modular AUV
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.

Osprey – modular long-range AUV with enhanced payload capacity

The Osprey is an advanced AUV that improves upon the Gavia platform by providing operational endurances of more than 24 hours while keeping the versatile modular design and the 1000 meter depth rating. The vehicle also includes a range of new features, including an efficient rim drive thruster, an external data pod, increased capacity battery modules, a science bay, obstacle avoidance, and a forward-looking sonar (FLS) nose.

Osprey long-range AUVThe AUV utilizes Teledyne’s unique QuickLock Mechanism to join all modules and maintain watertight integrity. Mechanical and electrical blind-mating allows the vehicle to be quickly and easily assembled, reconfigured and disassembled.

The Osprey can be equipped with multiple optional sensors, including cameras, sonars and echosounders, to suit the needs of defense, commercial and scientific users.

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.

SeaRaptor AUV
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.
