ECA’s Inspector MK2 goes wireless

30th August 2017 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


ECA Group has enhanced the communications capabilities of its Inspector MK2 USV to provide wireless data transfer with other unmanned systems, the company announced on 28 August.

The new capabilities will allow the Inspector MK2 USV to be used as an intelligent docking system for underwater USV systems such as autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) or remotely operated vehicles. When an AUV is recovered by the Inspector MK2, it will be able to recharge and download data before re-deploying. 

In addition to faster turnaround times, this new capability will also enable the underwater mission to be adapted or reconfigured while the systems are deployed.

With a large frequency spectrum - from  ultra high frequency to supra high frequency - a variety of communication architectures are possible, including point to point, point to multi point, and multi point interconnection.
