NORBIT Supplies WBMS Systems for NOC AUV

NORBIT has been appointed by the National Environmental Research Council (NERC) to supply two multi-beam echosounder (MBES) sonar systems for use on the National Oceanography Centre’s (NOC) new AUV platform.

The WBMS deep water multibeam systems will be used on NOC’s new 2000 meter depth rated AUV platform Autosub2KUI for under-ice exploration.

This will support future under-ice and deep sea science, including a number of upcoming major marine research programmes, NORBIT explained.

A robust system which has proven itself with regards under-ice mapping was required and NORBIT are pleased support NOC with leading technology,” the company said.
