Huge thank you goes to Maritime Robotics which were super helpful when we wanted to buy one of their amazing Otter USV's.
We got the USV yesterday and are already today performance-testing some of our upcoming products. The Otter will more or less replace the need for boats when we test our acoustics. Especially the comprehensive mission planning tool in the Otter software will be extensively used to create long range and long term repetitive test scenarios. ... See MoreSee Less
Changes: - Increased ping rate. Now up to 26 Hz. - Higher max speed on high altitudes - Improved reliability of velocity estimations - Updated web GUI - Updated APIs - And several minor changes/improvements
Thank you to everyone that visited Water Linked during the Equinor Underwater Intervention Drone demonstration event at Tau/Stavanger, Norway this week.
Water Linked demonstrated #UnderwaterGPS acheiving 1cm (!) positioning accuracy during docking of the Oceaneering Freedom UID drone on a Blue Logic subsea inductive charging station. The requirement was 2.5cm accuracy for the drone to connect to the inductive system. This requirement was demonstrated to be well within reach of Underwater GPS.
We even demonstrated wireless transfers of FullHD images from an AUV to the docking station using our upcoming Modem M4K product. This fulfils the requirement of having a "Human In The Loop" before a UID drone executes critical tasks subsea.
Two very interesting days and we look forward to supporting the industry with the best possible positioning system enabling safe and efficient docking of UID drones! ... See MoreSee Less
