Teledyne Gavia will formally introduce its new 6000 meter rated Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV), SeaRaptor, at Ocean Business in April.
The newly designed SeaRaptor AUV incorporates a broad range of Teledyne content including acoustic modems, ascent and descent weight releases, a black box pinger locator, sub-bottom profiler (Teledyne Benthos), multi-beam echosounders, obstacle avoidance multi-beam sonar (Teledyne RESON), Doppler Velocity Log (DVL), Current, Temperature, and Depth sensor (CTD) (Teledyne RD Instruments), and onboard processing software (Teledyne Caris).
In addition, the first vehicle delivered also carried an Edgetech Side Scan Sonar with Dynamic Focus capability, an iXblue Phins 6K INS system, and a CathX Camera and strobe system.
“Teledyne is excited to formally introduce the market to SeaRaptor, our new deep rated AUV,” said Thomas Altshuler, vice president and group general manager for the Teledyne Marine Vehicle group. “In SeaRaptor, the Teledyne Marine team has introduced a high performance AUV capable of carrying the most advance marine sensors available in the market. We have already delivered our first vehicle and see significant opportunities for SeaRaptor.”
