Hydroid Signs Contract with NOAA for REMUS 600 AUV
"Hydroid is proud to be a part of NOAA's important underwater mapping efforts," said Christopher von Alt, President and one of the co-founders of Hydroid. "This REMUS 600 will demonstrate the extensive capabilities of Hydroid AUVs and pave the way for the NOAA to use AUVs in future bathymetric mapping endeavors."
Coast Survey is responsible for acquiring hydrographic data for NOAA's nautical charting program, which provides navigational products and services for the maritime industry and recreational boaters. The REMUS 600 will be used to evaluate whether depth soundings collected by an AUV provide data that meet NOAA bathymetric mapping requirements. Survey plans are developed to ensure 100% ensonification of the seafloor, so the REMUS 600 will initially be operated as a test system aboard NOAA survey vessels. Once standard operating procedures are established and the data validated, it will be used for operational bathymetric mapping surveys.
