After years of development, French Acoustics specialist RTSYS unveils its latest versatile micro- AUV named NemoSens.

Small (less than 1 meter long), easy to carry and launch (less than 20 pounds including payload), micro-AUV NemoSens can host any kind of payload, be it a CTD probe, sidescan sonar or any other sensors. Thanks to an open LINUX architecture it can be programmed from a ROS or MOOS interface to complete various kind of missions.

2 AJS2949Its battery provides wide autonomy (up to 8 hours at 4 knots) with speed range from 2 to 8 knots and its robustness allows it to dive over 300 meters.

Several AUV can maneuver in swarm (+10) thanks to acoustics; beacons on the surface could also be used for real-time repositioning. Navigation is accurate thanks to integrated INS along with a GPS and a flasher in the mast for smooth recovery.
