Turnkey multibeam echosounder autonomous USV system.
LIGHTWEIGHT FOR EASY DEPLOYMENT
Allow two operators to cope with most of remote deployment conditions
Made of macromolecule polyester carbon fiber and Kevlar fiber-glass weighting 15 kg without sensors.
HIGH PERFORMANCE TRIPLE-HULLED VESSEL DESIGN
Versatile USV solution for offshore, coastal and inland water and lakes surveys
Its dual detachable floating bodies keep the hull balanced even in the rapid current situation. Removing the floating bodies allows operation in shoals, channels and shallow rivers without run aground.
OPTIMIZED FOR NORBIT MULTIBEAM ECHOSOUNDERS
High-end turnkey multibeam USV solution for high resolution bathymetry
APACHE 6 design is optimized for the NORBIT iWBMSe, iWBMS and iWBMSh-STX series offering with high end performances to match the most demanding hydrographic survey requirements.
OPTIONAL TERRESTRIAL MAPPING LASER SENSOR
Collect up to 300 000 points per second at a 30 x 360 degree coverage
The optional NORBIT iLiDAR mapping sensor provides high-accuracy combined marine and terrestrial 3D survey in a single pass saving significant processing time when performing harbor and river surveys with height clearance evaluation.
The APACHE6 USV is a full-integrated innovative solution for 3D bathymetric survey, underwater object positioning, offshore construction, underwater archaeology, and wrecked rescue. The APACHE6 is powered with a high-performance dual propeller system ensuring a stable constant automatic cruise speed of up to 2.5m/s (7.6 fps). The survey projects can also be completed in manual mode using the APACHE6 remote control panel over a 2 km distance. The APACHE6 multibeam USV reduces survey time, improves work efficiency, and outputs high-resolution data always to match the most demanding marine survey project requirements.
Additionally to the standard package that includes the remote control boat, single beam echosounder, and GNSS IMU sensor, the Apache 6 USV can be supplied with NORBIT multibeam echosounder and LIDAR scanner. Moreover, for detecting and distinguishing between fish and other debris underwater, the USV can also be equipped with a third-party fish finder transducer. The obtained data can be effectively used by researchers and engineers.
