Hydroid delivers 200th REMUS 100 AUV
Hydroid has delivered its 200th REMUS 100 Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) as part of a two unit delivery to the Swedish Navy. The milestone was reached with the December 2011 delivery to Sweden, which purchased two of the vehicles to support its mine countermeasures programme.
The Swedish Navy’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal teams now deploy the Hydroid AUVs in confined or shallow waters to find and classify submerged objects, ensuring the safety of Swedish harbours.
Hydroid's REMUS AUV is modular, and can be fitted with a variety of sensors and used to aid in hydrographic surveys, harbour security operations, debris field mapping, scientific sampling and mapping, pipeline inspection, as well as many basic and applied research programmes.
