aPad is an autonomous unmanned surface platform specialized for seafloor and surface surveying, mapping and inspection.
Thanks to innovative technology and state-of-the-art equipment it can also serve as a support vehicle for AUVs or divers providing two-way communication, tracking and monitoring of equipment and personnel.
Due to its modular nature and clever design it can easily be operated by a single person. This means logistics and deployment are simpler than with any other similar vehicle!
By using different sensors on board or configuration options, platform can be modified for a new mission in under an hour!
Depending on the mission you plan to execute, different software and sensor payload is necessary. In addition to the standard payload we support (listed below), we can integrate any sensorics you might already have at your company/institution. Contact us to discuss options!
