Perception of the Environment
As a part of the standard equipment, the Tritech Micron DST scanning sonar is mounted on top of the forward fuselage. This sensor is characterised by its mechanically rotating transducer which provides a 360° field of view.
This sonar system serves two different purposes:
- Manullay controlled: Data can be displayed using the fibre-optic connection of the vehicle.
- Autonomous: Tritech Micron DST scanning sonar is used for obstacle avoidance which can be activated by the user during mission planning
