Otter [USV]



The portable USV system.

The OTTER™ Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) is a turn-key and easily deployable system for seabed mapping and monitoring of sheltered waters.


We focus on quality.

We know the future is unmanned, and that effective and quality products improve our future

Maritime Robotics ́ custom Vehicle Control Station, VCS (app available for smart phones) allows the surveyor to plan the missions in a maritime chart based Graphical User Interface and also monitor the mission and the data acquisition quality whilst the USV is underway.
The autonomous future is electric, and the OTTER™ is equipped with electric tunnel-thrusters that are powered by up to 4 powerful and easily interchangeable battery packs. This gives the OTTER™ a best-in-class endurance for its size.
The OTTER™ can carry a variety of customer defined sensors for seabed and environmental mapping. Quality control and monitoring of the sensor performance and coverage area are performed via the Vehicle Control Station (VCS).




We focus on performance.

The OTTER™ is the newest member of our USV family. With a footprint of only 181 x 91 cm and a weight of 60 kg, it is an easily deployable asset that can be transported in a van or even within normal airliners to the survey site.

Electric propulsion and a tightly integrated bathymetric survey system makes this system a cost-efficient turn-key solution for bathymetric surveys in sheltered waters such as smaller lakes, canals, rivers, ponds and harbour areas.
