OceanServer Technology to provide Cal Poly with a Iver2 AUV including the VectorMap mission planning and data presentation tool.

OceanServer Technology, a leader in next generation autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) technology, announced that California Polytechnic Institute (Cal Poly) has agreed to purchase an Iver2 AUV for research purposes.  The order consists of one base vehicle outfitted with a second CPU for AUV behavior study and sensor development.  The Iver2 platform is used by leading universities across the United States for a variety of research purposes.

The Iver2 is a low-cost, simple to operate AUV system that incorporates a truly ‘open’ software architecture and defined hardware interfaces that enables researchers and OEMs to quickly adapt the Iver for a variety of applications.  Common payloads include GPS navigation, CTD probe, altimeter, side scan sonar, and several water quality sensors.

Each system includes the OceanServer VectorMap mission planning and data presentation tool, which provides geo-registered data files that can be easily exported to other software analysis tools.  The VectorMap program can input any geo-referenced chart, map or photo image, allowing the operator to intuitively develop missions using simple point-and-click navigation.

The base vehicle, with a starting price at just over $50,000, gives university, government and commercial users an affordable base-platform for survey applications in water quality, hydrography, security and general research.
