Hydroid, a subsidiary of Kongsberg Maritime, announced the installation of a new subsea hyperbaric testing system (HTS) at its manufacturing facility in Pocasset, Massachusetts.

The testing system simulates hydrostatic pressures found at depths up to 6,000 meters and will be used to test Hydroid’s autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and other marine robotics products to ensure their integrity at rated depth, the company explained.

“The level of advanced testing this system provides is crucial in ensuring that our vehicles meet and exceed the highest standards for subsea missions,” said Duane Fotheringham, president of Hydroid. “As industry leaders, it is our goal to continue to maximize our vehicles’ capabilities, and advance marine robotics technology.”

The HTS, manufactured by Telemark Technologies AS, includes built-in safeties with secondary pressure containment, rapid turnaround time and full electrical and hydraulic interfaces to test the assemblies while at pressure.
