VE115 - A MULTI-PURPOSE USV PROVIDING MULTI-MISSION CAPABILITIES

Introduction

The eSurvey VE115 is a full-integrated innovative solution for 3D bathymetric surveys and is widely used for different types of research including hydrology, leakage, water-quality studies, the contour of streams and reservoirs, storage and fill-in reservoirs and ponds, etc. The VE115 carries up to 15 kg of payload and is completely autonomous, it is safely operated from the shore. The VE115 offers an unmanned operation solution with a shallow draft, high navigational accuracy, and stable hovering for hydrologists.

Exceptional Hull Design

Experience a trapezoidal-shaped trimaran with better load and better ability against wind and waves, no longer need to worry about bumping and stranding for the installation position of the propeller levels. The hull makes placing the USV on the shallow shore possible.

Modular Design and Ease of Maintenance

Easily assemble and disassemble all parts for maintenance, and experience remote assistance if there is a hardware problem. That is, we can remotely guide you to detect which part is wrong and send you the parts to replace it, which greatly simplifies the repair process and avoids delays in sending the whole USV back.

Powerful technology: 700W Power for Each Thruster

The VE115 can reach 6 m/s by 1400w total strong power, which can perform well against water current. It is better for use in the ADCP survey.

Expand Your Unmanned Survey Capability

Freely choose the most suitable GNSS system from all eSurvey GNSS receivers and the needed sensors from single-beam echo sounder, dual single-beam echo sounder, ADCP, and online water quality monitoring system and water sampling system.

Compatible with ADCP, Long Endurance

The VE115 supports a wide variety of Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) systems available on the market. The VE115 weights 25 kg, it’s easy for two men to operate and transport. Powerful battery and low consumption supports 6 hours of endurance.

Multiple Safety Protection Mechanisms

Monitor the operational status of the USV in real-time, supported by the 360° full view camera, no longer need to worry about obstacles encountered during navigation for the ultrasonic obstacles avoidance module can help timely and effectively avoid obstacles, and no longer need to worry about communication loss due to the multiple low-voltage and safe return mechanisms to ensure navigation safety.
