Teledyne Gavia, a global leader in the provision of low logistic Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs), announces that it has recently delivered Teledyne Blueview MB2250 modules and associated Teledyne PDS software for all Gavia AUVs operated by the Turkish Navy Mine Countermeasures Command in Erdek, Turkey.

The Blueview MB2250 will be used in conjunction with the existing Edgetch 2205 Side Scan Sonars that are currently installed on the Turkish Navy Gavia vehicles and will provide capabilities for side scan sonar nadir gapfill as well as providing high frequency multibeam data that can aid in detection and classification of mine like objects.

During recent Mine Countermeasures (MCM) trials, use of the Teledyne BlueView MB2250 allowed the Gavia AUV to cover roughly forty percent more area in a given time than the vehicle would have been able to cover without the use of gap fill. This greatly increased coverage area is a significant development for small AUVs.

The Turkish Navy MCM command will utilize their Blueview equipped Gavia AUVs either from vessels of opportunity or from their AYDIN or ENGIN Class minehunters to augment existing MCM capabilities.

Gavia

The Gavia AUV is an autonomous sensor platform that is user configurable by the addition of one or more sensor, navigation or battery modules by means of a unique twist lock system. The Gavia AUV is a fully low logistics modular system designed for operation from vessels of opportunity and has the greatest depth rating of any vehicle in its class. The modular design of the Gavia ensures maximum mission flexibility and system upgradability. Module options include acoustic payloads for ASW training, various side scan sonars, multibeams, camera, and an array of environmental sensors.
