H2Omni-X*

Modular unmanned surface vehicle

First commercially-ready USV from H2O-Robotics offering versatility and latest technology in a single vehicle.

Preorder

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!

Applications

Bathymetry Survey

Bathymetry is the study of underwater depth of lake or ocean floors i.e. it is the underwater equivalent to topography.

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 & 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.
