NTNU purchases Remus 100 AUV

16th May 2012 - 15:55 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Hydroid has announced that the Norwegian University of Technology and Science (NTNU) has purchased a Remus 100 autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) system to support and enhance the operations of the University’s Applied Underwater Robotics Laboratory (AUR Lab). The Lab will use the Remus 100 AUV to facilitate engineering education and research and support scientific data collection and samplings, the company said in a 15 May, 2012 statement.

The NTNU AUR Lab is a multidisciplinary education and research laboratory for underwater operations and underwater robotics. The Lab brings together experts in control engineering, marine biology, marine archaeology, electrical engineering and telecommunications to support education and research in a variety of areas, including biology, underwater acoustics and subsea oil and gas.

According to Hydroid, ‘the Remus 100 will provide NTNU with an excellent tool for advanced AUV research; the vehicle’s modularity and open system architecture, based on a common Kongsberg AUV technology platform, will allow NTNU to easily integrate new sensors and develop advanced control and autonomy solutions.’

Hydroid's Remus AUVs are modular: They can be fitted with a variety of sensors and are designed to be used to aid in hydrographic surveys, harbor security operations, debris field mapping, scientific sampling and mapping.
