New Aquabotix partnership and sale
Aquabotix will integrate the Water Linked Underwater GPS system with its Endura remotely operated vehicle (ROV) as part of a partnership between the companies.
The deal is anticipated to enable greater underwater positioning for Aquabotix across a wide range of applications, including tank and hull inspections, fish farm exploration and search and recovery missions.
“Water Linked and Aquabotix share a common mission to make underwater missions easier and more effective,” said David Batista, CEO of Aquabotix. “As a technology leader that’s disrupting underwater acoustics through performance, price and physical size, we’re confident that Water Linked’s enhanced positioning capabilities will help generate greater user experiences for our Endura ROV customers.”
Aquabotix has also sold one Hybrid vehicle to the Korean Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources (KIGAM) for ongoing geoscience and energy research in the Korean waters.
Aquabotix’s Hybrid vehicle – designed for multiple sectors including research, environmental assessment and infrastructure – can search wide areas using AUV mode (untethered) while conducting detailed inspections using ROV mode (tethered).
Users can easily switch from AUV mode to ROV mode by attaching the tether to remotely control the vehicle’s six degrees of freedom of motion.
When running the vehicle in autonomous operation, all mission planning is completed in an intuitive Windows-based application.
