OceanServer Tecnology is the developer of the Iver family of modern, low-cost Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs). These robust, man-portable systems are ideal for survey, search and rescue, scientific and military applications in near-coastal water. The low, all-inclusive price (including mission planning and post mission analysis software) has enabled many organizations to add this technology into their equipment pool and survey methodology. OceanServer Technology, Inc. is a leading provider of man-portable Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) with more than 200 AUVs deployed worldwide.
The Iver AUV is designed to be an affordable, commercial vehicle used for general survey and sub-surface security work, and serves as a research platform for autonomy, behavioral and sensor development studies.
