OceanServer Technology, Inc. has recently received new orders for four Iver2 AUVs, two for US end users, one from a European research organization and the first for a South American survey company. The applications for the vehicles include water quality/environmental monitoring, hydrographic survey, navigation algorithm development and general educational research.
One of the awards for an Iver2 EP30 resulted from a competitive procurement by Eltex Echipamente Electronice Industriale srl in Romania. Eltex expects to develop and integrate additional sensors for educational research and mapping projects.
The Applied Physics Laboratory of the University of Washington has procured their first Iver2 AUV for use in an ongoing research project.
The two remaining vehicles will be sold through YSI Environmental for use in water quality monitoring and general survey work.
