Aquabotix ROV Gets Water Linked GPS

Aquabotix has entered into a partnership with Norwegian technology supplier Water Linked.

As part of the partnership, Aquabotix will integrate the Water Linked Underwater GPS system with its Endura ROV.

This should enable greater underwater positioning for Aquabotix across a wide range of applications, including tank and hull inspections, fish farm exploration and search and recovery missions.

“Water Linked and Aquabotix share a common mission to make underwater missions easier and more effective,” said David Batista, CEO of Aquabotix. “As a technology leader that’s disrupting underwater acoustics through performance, price and physical size, we’re confident that Water Linked’s enhanced positioning capabilities will help generate greater user experiences for our Endura ROV customers.”

Traditionally, smaller ROVs have limited position system options due to their large physical size and high cost. Water Linked’s Underwater GPS system, which relies on acoustics to transmit data through the water, is designed to operate in challenging environments such as water tanks, shallow water within ports, fish cages for aquaculture and environments where existing conventional underwater positioning systems typically break down, Aquabotix explains.

“Aquabotix is at the forefront of underwater robotics and technology,” said Oliver Skisland, CEO of Water Linked. “We look forward to helping Aquabotix build upon their existing positioning capabilities to transform the future of ROV-based inspection and exploration.”
