Teledyne Oceanscience has released a new remotely operated hydrographic survey vessel called the Z-Boat 1250, the company announced on 23 October.

Equipped with a single beam echosounder, the USV is designed for a range of inland water survey operations in areas such as mining pits and tailing ponds, environmentally sensitive areas, construction and inspection zones, dams, reservoirs, harbours and rivers.

The Z-Boat 1250 has a lightweight trimaran style hull manufactured from ABS plastic. With a collapsible sliding crossbar design, it can be transported by a single operator making surveys in remote areas possible. The vessel is IP67 rated, making it suitable for survey in most water conditions.

The Z-Boat’s propulsion system uses two thrusters, one in each outrigger, and a 2.4GHz remote control transmitter that adjusts the two thrusters to steer the boat.
