Ocean Infinity Expands AUV Fleet

Ocean Infinity said it has purchased two more autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) from Kongsberg Maritime.

This will increase Ocean Infinity’s fleet of HUGIN 6000 AUVs from six to eight vehicles, which will be used worldwide to collect seabed data.

The fleet of AUV’s will be operated simultaneously, each AUV programmed with an independent mission plan. Each AUV can reach depths of 6,000 meters and has an approximate endurance of 48 hours.

Ocean Infinity’s AUV’s all come standard with side scan sonar, multi-beam ecosounder, sub-bottom profiler, conductivity/temperature/depth sensor and self-compensating magnetometer.

In the second quarter of 2017 Ocean Infinity said it will begin sea trials on the simultaneous operation of multiple autonomous vehicles to be used in the exploration of the seabed, accompanied by unmanned surface vehicles (USV)
