OceanServer Technology announced that the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) has agreed to purchase another Iver2 AUV for delivery this summer. This second system provides additional capability for APL’s general research, including the development of underwater sensor systems.
 
Founded in 1942, APL is a not-for-profit center for engineering, research and development, and solves complex problems that present critical challenges to the nation.
 
Johns Hopkins APL will be taking delivery of an Iver2 EP42 platform that includes a second (user) CPU and intuitive API. The AUV will be equipped with the new EdgeTech 2205 (400/900 kHz) high resolution side scan sonar. The Iver’s 'open' software architecture and defined hardware interfaces allow researchers and OEMs to quickly adapt the Iver for a variety of applications. The EP42 vehicle includes 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 pointand-click navigation.
