Teledyne releases new module for Gavia
Teledyne Gavia has released a new module that integrates Klein Marine Systems' UUV-3500 high-resolution side scan sonar with a bathymetry sonar, the company announced on 23 January.
Equipping the Gavia AUV with the survey-grade long range side scan creates a highly mobile survey platform with high quality side scan range and resolution. The swath bathymetry option allows for wide swath performance which is typically ten to twelve times the overall altitude of the AUV. The new module allows customers to have both side scan and swath bathymetry from a single module.
The Gavia AUV can also be equipped with a camera and strobe system for close inspection of any targets identified by the sonar system.
The system is designed for a range of missions, including geophysical survey, cable and pipeline inspection, environmental and under ice survey; as well as mine countermeasures, rapid environmental assessment and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.
