Multifunctional semi-automated platform 'Sleipnir'

Multifunctional semi-automated platform for performing 3D SBP surveys. A scanning mechanism is located in the front and can automatically orient the transduser pattern perpendicular to movement. The positioning of the system can be carried out by differential GNSS receivers or by underwater acoustic positioning system. Depending on the type of bottom sediments the platform can be equipped with wheels or tracks.

  • Depth rating to 3000 m
  • Precise positioning of survey equipment
  • Can be equipped with a wide range of survey instruments and sensors
