HyDrone RCV - Remote Control Vessel 


specifications

The HyDrone™ RCV is a portable, remote control survey boat platform, packed in its own rugged case. Working in conjunction with the HydroLite-TM portable echosounder kit to conduct bathymetric surveys in ponds, lakes, rivers, and streams, the HyDrone RCV accomplishes the same results as much more expensive RC survey systems, has a wide profile to avoid tipping, and watertight construction.

HyDrone is rugged, lightweight, and manufactured from high quality marine components. The system is easily disassembled for transport and shipping. Work environments include mines, sewage treatment plants, contaminated lakes, harbors, and rivers.
