Huon Aquaculture, based in Australia, has doubled its fleet of Saab Seaeye Falcons to four vehicles.

The two new Falcons will join the fleet to inspect nets, rigging and moorings at Huon’s aquaculture pens.

The pens are positioned in areas of strong current and rough water favored for salmon farming as it mimics their natural habitat, Saab Seaeye explained.

The Falcon’s iCON behaviour-based intelligent control architecture offers precise positioning and active station-keeping to let the operator concentrate on the task in hand thereby reducing their workload.

Huon sees the Falcon as ideal for aquaculture operations as its low profile allows deployment sideways between a walkway and the net.

The vehicle’s intelligent control system allows for a wide range of equipment to be easily added and changed for many different tasks.
