OceanServer Technology announced today that it recently delivered two lightweight multibeam sonar equipped AUV’s to the Navy Special Warfare(NSW) Command. These AUV’s were competitively procured and operationally tested prior to delivery to the NSW Command at the Stennis Space Center in September of 2010.
Additionally the Office of Naval Research(ONR) has contracted with OTI for a third vehicle to be delivered in December 2011. This is the fifth such award to OceanServer Technology (OTI) over the past three 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 Command anticipates operationally deploying the vehicles early in CY 2012.
