Compact and stable

This lightweight and robust USV is easy to use and transport by one person. The design significantly improves stability at high speeds.

Data update

The data is transmitted by radio link to the acquisition PC on land to check the results in real time.


Can be remotely controlled by a single operator in manual mode or in automatic mode using the built-in GPS, following a programmed route. This small and easy-to-handle drone performs a more precise mapping of the seabed. Operations are completed faster than with traditional boat surveys.


Performs measurements in shallow water (15 cm draft). Easy-to-handle and responsive with several speeds (up to 5m/s) depending on the requirements and navigation conditions.


Robust and durable carbon fiber hull with integrated well.


A single operator from the shore.
