Hydro Dam Surveys Where Manned Boats Can’t Reach.

Hydrologists at HydroQuebec in Canada are tasked with surveying areas around dams. Often in regions of high water flow and high velocities, it is generally forbidden to use a manned boat. The surveys are completed from the safety of the shore with the CEE-USV™ using the Trimble RTK CEESCOPE-LITE™ on board. See more of the system in action on a dam survey HERE.

Royal Australian Navy Receive CEE Rapid Mobilization Kits

The Royal Australian Navy identified three survey scenarios where a combined single beam and side scan approach would offer the most suitable solution: rapid area assessments ahead of landing vehicles, overseas aid delivery, and light utility boat surveying from dedicated hydrographic survey launches. CEE HydroSystems were contracted to provide hardware, software, and support. Read the new case history detailing the RAN surveys HERE.

More Spectacular Surveys with the CEE-PILOT™ USV Navigation Upgrade

Developed in partnership with marine autonomy experts Dynautics Ltd, the CEE-PILOT™ robotic navigation autopilot creates stunning single beam bathymetry images with laser-straight lines. The key design criteria was absolute simplicity. The CEE-PILOT™ is designed with one thing in mind – to minimize added complexity; the surveyor only needs to select manual or automatic on the controller. No on-board PC, no extra comms links, and no special software. LEARN MORE HERE or READ THE CASE HISTORY.
