The SL40 is a waterjet-propelled unmanned surface vessel (USV) for multibeam bathymetric survey. The innovative waterjet propeller allows the USV to sail at 5m/s and effectively avoid being entangled in water plants or debris. The USV comes with collision avoidance system and RTK, and can be controlled by either a base station or a remote control. It can carry 15 kg of survey instrument which making it the most economical platform for smaller-sized multibeam echo sounder like R2Sonic 2020 MBES.
