Diverse water environments

Intended for aerial use on drones, the system covers various water areas such as shorelines, rivers, lakes, estuaries, ponds and gravel pits. Navigator is user-friendly and adaptable for a wide range of applications, from hydrographic surveys to underwater resource management.

44° FOV for high precision

Our bathymetric system, with a 44-degree field of view, prioritizes precision over a broader angle. This decision is based on the fact that 44° is the maximum angle for a green laser to perform effectively underwater. Beyond this angle, the laser’s penetration depth in water is significantly affected, limiting the system’s overall performance.
