AUV INNOVATIVE PERCEPTION
eSonar's AUV innovative perception approach can expand the capability and feature diversity of even micro-AUV platforms. This can elevate subsea AUVs from the current open ocean data collection platforms to precision confined area survey systems, providing situational awareness data that is specific, measurable, and appropriate to the limited processing power available on the AUV platform.
This contrasts with high-end imaging sonars that produce stored data that can only be interpreted post-survey by the human eye and offering no real-time operational benefit. Rather, by combining multiple smart yet simple data sets, a rich data tapestry can result that is both operationally useful, mission appropriate and tactically sound, while still supporting other data collection systems.
