USVs: A Solution for Inspecting Dams and Guarding Waterways

(MARTAC) Inc., to conduct a comprehensive survey of the underwater portions of this dam. MARTAC produces a family of MANTAS unmanned vessels built on a catamaran hull. Ameren Missouri selected a twelve-foot MANTAS for this underwater bathymetric imaging. For this task, the MANTAS was equipped with a Teledyne Reson T20 Multi-beam Echo-sounder/Sonar.(Photo: Jack Rowley)The objective of the Keokuk Dam hydrographic survey was to map and inspect underwater structures with an unmanned surface vehicle followed by the USV performing the survey of the upstream and downstream sections of the dam. The deliverable

Teledyne RDI Offering Trade Up Discount for Next Gen DVLs

After years as proven industry standards, Teledyne RD Instruments Workhorse Navigator and Explorer Doppler Velocity Logs (DVLs) are being retired effective May 2020.These DVLs have served the industry well for many years, particularly the Workhorse Navigator, which was the first commercially available DVL for precision subsea vehicle navigation introduced back in 1995. To aid customers in their transition, Teledyne RDI is offering customer the opportunity to trade in their older DVL technology for up to a 15% discount on their next-gen DVL products.  Full details are available here.

The DTRA's Blowfish Project demonstrated its capabilities during the Joint Exercise Arctic Edge 2020 in Juneau, Alaska in February 2020. During the exercise, Blowfish engaged the system’s underwater neutralization disruptor against surrogate underwater explosive threat targets. The VideoRay ROV system demonstrated 100% success in seven disruption attempts on varied target types (Photo: Darnell Gardner)

The Blowfish Project: ROV Helps to Secure US Waterways

is slated to become part of a System-of-Systems approach employed by USN EOD Expeditionary Mine Countermeasures forces in their wide-ranging maritime missions around the globe.According to Bailey, Blowfish developments include the successful integration of a lightweight manipulator arm onto a modified Teledyne SeaBotix vLBV 300 ROV, with state-of-the-art navigation package, the SeeByte CoPilot. The system also integrates a fielded EOD TiTAN disruptor tool modified for maritime use to deliver a low-collateral damage effect that will neutralize an underwater threat.“We anticipate the Blowfish project
