Integration of multibeam echo sounders, ADCPs, DVLs, LiDARs, among other sensors in our uncrewed vehicles
One of the services TideWise offers is data collection using LiDAR and Multibeam Echosounder sensors.
Bathymetry, which consists of measuring the depth of oceans, lakes and rivers, is essential for port access channel monitoring services, diagnosis of possible silting up, dredging forecast and planning, maintenance of port draft, beach widening, archaeological research underwater and other purposes.
We are the first company operating uncrewed vessels in Brazil to register with the CHM (Centro de Hidrografia da Marinha), and the first to obtain permission to carry out special order hydrographic surveys Category A. These surveys are carried out using technical specifications that allow the data obtained are used to update nautical documents.
The Multibeam consists of an acoustic probe used to generate charts, blueprints and digital models (2D and 3D) of the sea floor. LiDAR sensors, on the other hand, are used to detect and collect data through light beams above the waterline, mapping slopes, rockfills and channel walls, for example.
The USV Tupan can be integrated with a wide range of sensors according to customer specifications. This makes it possible to offer special order hydrographic services and support for coastal and ocean engineering works.
