Hydroid has received an order from the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science Technology (JAMSTEC) for its Remus 6000 AUV to support deep sea resource exploration, the company announced on 19 November.

The equipment will support Japan's Strategic Innovation Promotion Program: Innovative Technology for Exploration of Deep Sea Resources.

The Remus 6000 features a modular architecture that allows for the addition of multiple payloads including customer sensor packages, forward fins and additional battery sections. The AUV’s new low-power core electronics and a hydrodynamic hull design offer increased endurance for longer missions.

Graham Lester, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Hydroid, said: ‘We are honoured to be able to supply the deep water AUV solution to support JAMSTEC's highly respected deep sea resource exploration capabilities.

‘Our vehicle, with a modular architecture that allows for advanced capabilities and flexibility of operation, is the ideal solution for JAMSTEC's current and future operational needs.’
