Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) has begun training students to operate their new Saab Seaeye Falcon underwater robotic vehicle.

This follows Falcon training for CSIRO staff at the organisation’s facility in Hobart, Tasmania, by BlueZone, Saab Seaeye’s distributor in the region.

The course was adapted to give hands-on practical training for CSIRO staff in a week-long training program that includes theory and practical sessions, set near dockside facilities in Hobart, the company explained.

The CSIRO Falcon features include high-intensity dimmable LED lighting, Tritech Super SeaPrince sonar and a Kongsberg OE14-502 HD zoom camera.

Since 2000, BlueZone has specified, delivered and supported sales of different Saab Seaeye systems in the Australian regions.
