Osbit Supplies Subsea Docking System for Modus AUV

Osbit, the subsea engineering and technology company, has delivered two subsystems for an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV), operated by subsea and seabed intervention company Modus.

Osbit has designed and manufactured a floating launch dock and a sea parking garage to meet Modus’s launch and recovery requirements for its Saab Sabertooth hybrid AUV, a lightweight underwater platform used for survey, inspection and other light intervention tasks.

Osbit’s floating launch dock enables the operator to deploy the vehicle and return it to the deck of the ship. The dock is submerged in the sea as the AUV leaves and returns, and partially fills with air to allow collection from the water surface, the company explained.

The subsea parking garage allows the operator to deploy the AUV at a specific location without having to maintain a presence there. When it has completed its automated tasks, the AUV returns to the garage and  awaits recovery by the operator.

Osbit managing director Brendon Hayward said: “We are pleased to have supported Modus in expanding its AUV capability, part of its already extensive range of subsea vehicles. ”
