Description

Portable USV solution for bathymetric survey

Featuring triple-hulled and shallow draught design, the APACHE 3 is a portable USV for bathymetric surveys of lakes, inland rivers and coastal areas. Its compact size and light weight (1-meter length and 7 kg without instrument) allow one person to operate the system easily.

Key Features
● Lightweight design: APACHE 3 is made of macromolecule polyester carbon fiber and Kevlar fiber-glass (weighting 7 kg without sen-sors). It allows one operator to cope with most of remote deployment conditions.

● Pocket hull structure: With less than 1 m length and triple-hulled vessel design, the APACHE 3 keeps the hull balanced even in the rapid current situation. In the meantime, its unique structure supports operation in shoals, channels and shallow rivers for the bathymetric survey without run aground.

● Absolute linear technology: APACHE 3 integrates high precision positioning and heading technology to maintain a perfect straight sailing course even in complex current conditions.

● Quad Pole Protective Design: APACHE 3 is fitted with quad tough and rigid carbon fiber bars installed in the bottom of the hull to protect propellers to get rid of twined by fishing nets and aquatic plants in riverways and shallow water.
