Drone Based Bathymetric Survey

10x Faster & 2x Cost-Efficient Acquire seamless bathymetry data of coastal and inland water. Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) - drone equipped with Echo Sounder is the best solution especially for hard to reach areas

.S

Solution Overview

The integrated drone system for bathymetry consists of
 a
 drone (UAV) integrated with Echo Sounder or Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR). The full integration is ensured by
adding the onboard computer UgCS SkyHub to the system.
Adding a laser/radar Altimeter to the system enables the
drone to precisely follow the terrain, based on the data
received from the altimeter. The drone's flight is planned
and managed using the full functionality of UgCS.
