Overview

Iver2-580-S  Standard AUV



Reliable, Rugged, Lightweight, Simple to Operate, 1 man portable, AUV for costal operations



Iver2-580-s

The Iver2 vehicle is a revolutionary design for AUVs. It is very rugged, reliable and simple to plan and execute missions. Our goal starting 6 years ago was to have a base vehicle that sells for around $50,000 USD. It was designed to be used in everyday operation in salt and fresh water Bathometry, environmental monitoring, search and recovery, surveys and general data collection.

Sending a vehicle underwater is a very risky operation as there are many unforeseen challenges to operation. The Iver2 has many new features to make sure it comes to the surface and can be recovered. One key feature is our emergency tow float (patent pending) that will independently blow an airbag if the vehicle is distressed.

Features:

Proven Reliability - The Iver2 vehicles have been in daily operation for over 5 years, we will be building our 100’th vehicle this year. Many of the parts such the fin shafts +seals + fins are field replaceable in minutes.

Ease of Operation - The graphical mission planner and simple interface to the vehicle control makes it every quick to plan and execute missions. The operation tempo is extremely fast.

Ease of Deployment - The Iver2 family of vehicles can be shipped overnight on standard air freight and is NOT DOT class 9 controlled like most other AUVs. A single operator can shore launch a vehicle and start a mission in minutes. The vehicle will park near shore (for ours) after the mission and can be driven to shore with a joy stick for pickup by the operator at a later time.
