 Autonomous Survey Boat , Moon Pool Design
Hydrographic surveying CL20 carrying mainstream brands ADCP stands out from unmanned remote control boats in water discharge measurement and hydrographic survey attributing to its extreme shallow draft, convenient laying and delivery, conducting survey and measurement in water area where traditional surveying and measuring method are impossible to proceed.
Using CL20 Autonomous Hydrographic Survey Boat surveying &measuring unmanned robotic boat can reduce blind spot largely during working , improve working efficiency , accuracy and enlarge coverage area as well as avoiding safety risk of operation on water so as to reduce working difficulty.
CL20 is specially designed for surveying and bathymetric measurement, optimized unmanned ship style reducing the impact of water current of voyage and noise on the measuring instruments to the maximum extent.
CL20 is made of Carbon fiber and fiber glass featured by its anti-corrosion, anti-wave, low temperature resistance, mounted with two propellers to avoid aquatic plants and garbage twining.

Introduction ESM30 Autonomous Sampling Boat featured by its standardized water sampling, salt lake sampling,evaporation pond sampling and on-line water quality mobile monitoring is the first unit of environmental unmanned surface vessel in the world

M40A Autonomous Survey Boat is medium size platform specified for hydrographic survey in coastal and ocean. With modular catamaran design and flexible payload for instruments such as multibeam sonar, Autonomous survey boat MA40 was developed to provide high performance survey with multi beam sonar and different kinds of hydrographic and monitoring instruments in ocean.

The dimension for M40A unmanned surface vehicle is 3.3*1.9*2.2m, weighing 450kg with 60kgs payload capability, made of Aluminum and carbon fiber materials suitable for high salinity seawater, and anti-corrosive .


Catamaran hull design greatly enhance sailing stability, enabling top survey speed reach 4m/s, endurance reach 6 hours.

In addition, the USV has excellent cruise ability with autonomous navigation and intelligent obstacle avoidance functions to make it suitable for large-scale inshore mapping; its 60KG payload capability allows it to carry single beam, multi beam, forward looking sonar,  ADCP, water quality probe, allowing it to be multi- purposed unmanned ship for oceanographic survey in deep ocean.

A portable base station is necessary in order to simplify the operation of this vehicle. It is able to receive various telemetric data of USV; the mapping equipment through wireless communication system allows operator to learn the status of mission completion, the attitude of the unmanned vessel. Its compact and lightweight hull allows only one operator to handle all the operation by using the designed base station.

The base station plays an important roles in mission planning, procedure programming, monitoring the real-time working status, receiving real- time data transmission with 2km data telemetry, 2km video transmission and5km navigation control as well as monitoring measurement data and mission completion of USV, receiving real-time multi-angel video, data storage and management.

In addition to the main base station, necessary accessories also include handled terminal controller used to operate the unmanned boat manually in short distance covered within 2km communication range which is portable and easy to change between auto and manual mode.

Autonomous Survey Boat introduction SURF20 ADCP Monohull Remote Measurement Boat is designed for water discharge measurement and hydrographic survey

The research and development of Unmanned Survey Vessels, compatible with different brands ADCP and s. The Remote Measurement Boat size is 1.25*0.46*0.3m and only 13kg weight which makes it maneuverable, compact, and could easily be operated by just one person and carried on the back of a SUV or a trunk. The maximum speed can reach 5.5m/s covered within 2km communication control range, so that the boat is suitable for most water current environment.
