developed, low cost Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV), Iver2, ideal for coastal applications such as hydrographic surveys and environmental monitoring. This next generation vehicle is single man-portable and features simple point and click mission planning.

OceanServer Technology announced that it has recently delivered an Iver2 Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) to the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Indian Head Division. NSWC will use the Iver2 AUV for sensor development, general research, and in-water evaluation of new sensors. The Indian Head Division has a long track record of critical research for the US Navy and is recognized as the nation’s premier resource for energetics technology, development & innovation, and technology-based solutions.

The Iver Platform
All Iver2 AUV models come standard with OceanServer’s VectorMap Mission Planning and Data Presentation tool, which provides geo-registered data files that can be easily exported to other software analysis tools. This unique design has enabled OceanServer to carve out a very strong position in the research space for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles. The VectorMap program can input NOAA ENCs or any geo-referenced chart, map or photo image, allowing the operator to intuitively develop AUV missions using simple point-and-click navigation. The base vehicle, with a starting price at just over $50,000 USD, gives university, government and commercial users an affordable base-platform for sensor development or survey applications in water quality, hydrography, sub-surface security and general research.
