MARVEL-SCAN AUV just makes AUV technology accessible. Using MARVEL-Scan is certainly nowadays one of the most simple and cost-effective way to perform bathymetric surveys.
Equipped with a 200kHz or 680kHz Side Scan Sonar from DeepVision MARVEL-SCAN provide with a great quality of image with high-stability, accurate navigation and capable of managing coastal areas with waves and current.
MARVEL-SCAN is equipped with underwater acoustic positioning and communication module.
With an autonomy up to 8 hours, and speed up to 6knots, and depth rated at 300m.
Thanks to the INX navigation, DVL and acoustic positioning, MARVEL-SCAN is able to have a navigation accuracy equal to <5m absolute positioning within USBL surface module range.
SEAPLAN software provides an ideal and versatile interface for the MARVEL-SCAN AUV and have pre-defined lawn-mover patterns to make a swift scan mission.
Thanks to its mission programming savings and updates, SEAPLAN facilitates discovery of new area as well as repetitive mission in similar locations.
DeepVision Side Scan Sonar software provides easy access to data visualization.
MARVEL-SCAN is provided with all the necessary functions to be ready-to-deploy :
- INX Navigation system
- SEAPLAN Software
- Embedded rechargeable batteries
- Field case and accessories
- Acoustic positioning and communication module
- Autonomous buoy with USBL unit and dual antenna GNSS-RTK module
