SC Marine Research SRL Takes Delivery of Two Iver2 AUVs.


OceanServer Technology, Inc. has recently delivered two AUVs to SC Marine Research SRL located in Bucharest, Romania. Marine Research is a new and dynamic company devoted to the research of aquatic environments in and around Romania. The two IVER2 systems will initially be used to map the sea bottom around the Danube Delta located on the Black Sea. The purpose of this research is to identify and localize benthic habitats and document their characteristics. The Danube Delta is the second largest Delta in Europe and considered one of the best preserved on the continent. Going forward, other survey applications are expected to include mapping inland Romanian waters such as lakes, reservoirs and sections of the Danube River. The AUVs are both equipped with side scan sonar and one system has the Imagenex Delta-T multiple beam sonar system designed to provide high-speed imaging for use in hydrographic surveys of the Black Sea. In addition to the sonar systems, the vehicles have the capability to collect Acoustic Doppler Current (ADCP) data along with conductivity, temperature, and depth (CTD) for continuous in-situ measurements used to characterize sound velocity in support of hydrographic surveying.


The Iver Platform
 

All Iver2 AUV models come standard with OceanServer’s VectorMap Mission Planning and Data Presentation tool, which provides geo-registered data files that can be easily exported to other software analysis tools. This unique AUV design has enabled OceanServer to carve out a very strong position in the research space for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles, sensors and behavioral studies. The VectorMap program can input NOAA ENCs or any
geo-referenced charts, maps or photo images, allowing the operator to intuitively develop AUV missions using simple point-and-click navigation.


The base vehicle, with a starting price at just over $50,000 USD, gives university, government and commercial users an affordable base-platform for sensor development or survey applications in water quality, sub-surface security and general research.
