WHY USVs ARE THE BEST OPTION
USV Tupan can operate in adverse weather conditions and in varied aquatic environments. It can perform multiple missions in a single trip, as it has the capacity to load several sensors..
As there is no crew on board, the hydrographic survey can be carried out in places of difficult access, in a hostile climate or in sensitive marine environments.
Using the USV Tupan saves a great deal on labor and fuel costs, as well as employee expenses, as there is no need for crew on board.
USV Tupan consumes less fuel and is easier to transport than a conventional vessel. Because it has no crew, it can operate longer.
USV Tupan can fulfill a route and replicate the path with greater precision. It has a stabilizing system that improves sonar performance, contributing to data quality.
Communication is made for up to 18km by radio link, 4G or satellite, and allows the operator to see accurate data results in real time.
Surveillance and Security
USV Tupan is capable of integrating the most advanced sensors on the market. It’s revolutionary anti-roll system guarantees the reliability of the generated data, being able to carry out the full 3D seafloor mapping up to 800m deep using a multibeam sonar (Multibeam Echosounder).
It can also be equipped with USBL, subbottom profilers and other sensors that collect meteoroceanographic data with high space and time density.
With sufficient and reliable information about the nature of the seafloor, USV Tupan can:
assist in building a wind farm to allow a safe and economical project, as well as its installation and maintenance;
perform inspection and accurate monitoring of offshore engineering works (such as construction of breakwaters, ports, piers, berths, beach replenishment , platforms, etc.);
perform LBL (Long Baseline) calibration;
track ROVs and AUVs using USBL (Ultra Short Baseline);
monitor the laying of submarine pipelines
on-demand inspections after storms or other disasters;
continuous research to ensure navigable waterways.
In addition to these services, the USV Tupan can carry small loads of up to 150kg between offshore units separated by more than 15km (over the horizon) at a speed of up to 6.5 knots
Its diesel-electric propulsive system ensures maximum energy efficiency allowing the vehicle to operate for up to 7 days without refueling, decreasing the operating window.
USV Tupan can perform bathymetry services, collect environmental data, assist in offshore construction, detect, monitor and collect oil spills, measure water quality and perform port services.
