H2Omni-X

Modular unmanned surface vehicle

First commercially-ready USV from H2O-Robotics, already delivered dozens of times to worldwide partners and clients, giving them versatility and latest technology in a single vehicle.

H2Omni-X is 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 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, the platform can be modified for a new mission in under an hour!

Payload

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!

Options

In some cases using Omni-X as an omni-directional platform is not suitable. For example, mapping a large area, pipeline or river bottom require faster operation and longer range. This is where catamaran and gasoline options of Omni-X come handy!

CATAMARAN
INCREASE SPEED AND RANGE
This option modifies the physical layout of the vehicle by lifting it up onto two floaters which, together with refitting the thrusters, makes the vehicle more suitable for long-range scanning operations.
GASOLINE
INCREASE AUTONOMY
This is an additional option which can be combined with the catamaran option, giving the vehicle even greater range for most enduring missions.
