OceanServer Technology announced today that it was recently awarded a competitive procurement to deliver two lightweight multibeam sonar equipped AUV’s to the US Navy. These AUV’s are to be operationally tested and delivered to the Naval Special Warfare (NSW) Command at the Stennis Space Center in September of 2010.
This is the fourth such award to OceanServer Technology (OTI) over the past two years and represents the most sophisticated vehicle developed by OTI to date. Fully equipped with Side Scan Sonar (SSS), Doppler Velocity Log (DVL), Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP), Conductivity, Temperature and Depth (CTD) sensor, and Multi-beam Imaging sonar, the lightweight Iver is the industry leader in man-portable AUV systems. The NSW anticipates operationally deploying the vehicles soon after delivery.
