OceanServer Technology has delivered an Iver2 Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) to Aselsan, Inc. of Ankara, Turkey. Aselsan, a major research and development organization specializing in Defense Systems Technologies, Guidance and Electro-optics, Electronic Warfare, and Communication System Technologies, will use the Iver2 AUV for general R&D purposes and for ongoing Unmanned Underwater Vehicle development activities.
Aselsan has a long track record of developing sophisticated products and technology-based solutions throughout the world for both military and professional applications.
The Iver2 is a low-cost, simple to operate AUV system that incorporates a truly 'open' software architecture and defined hardware interfaces. This unique design has enabled OceanServer to carve out a very strong position in the Research & Development space for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles. Common payloads include GPS navigation, CTD probe, altimeter, side scan sonar, and a variety of optical and chemical water quality sensors.
Each system includes the OceanServer VectorMap Mission Planning and Data Presentation tool, which provides geo-registered data files that can be easily exported to other software analysis tools. The VectorMap program can input any geo-referenced chart, map or photo image, allowing the operator to intuitively develop missions using simple point-and-click navigation.
