Bathymetry and Hydro Surveyor


rQPOD Remote Surface Water Vehicle

The YSI rQPOD is a lightweight, easy-to-assemble propulsion system that can fit to many board-style platforms. It allows users to collect data over a large spatial area in minutes, and in areas otherwise inaccessible. The 2.4 GHz remote control allows operators to control the system from up to 250 meters with a clear line of sight, with real-time data visualization options that allow users to make mission changes and decisions on the spot.

Collect more spatial and temporal data in a single mission than ever before

Ultimate flexibility in sensor payload for water quality, bathymetry, discharge, and more

Lightweight design for single-person transport and deployment

Easy on-site setup that's ready to run in 15 minutes or less

Marine-grade components for operation in tough environments

HYCAT Autonomous Surface Vehicle

The HYCAT Autonomous Surface Vehicle (ASV) is the newest element in the Xylem brand Autonomous and Remote Vehicle Monitoring Solutions. Developed in partnership by YSI and SeaRobotics, this unique ASV combines products from multiple brands to provide a total solution for your site. Sensors have plug-and-play capabilities, allowing the HYCAT to be customized to your specific site needs. The HYCAT can also be easily deployed with two people in remote locations, not requiring ramp/dock launch access.

SonTek HydroSurveyor

The HydroSurveyor is designed to collect bathymetric, water column velocity profile, and acoustic bottom tracking data as part of a hydrographic survey.  The two key components of the system are the HydroSurveyor Acoustic Doppler Profiler (ADP®) platform and the powerful yet user-friendly data collection software. With the HydroSurveyor platform, SonTek can offer an exclusive 5-beam depth sounding device with built-in navigation, full water column velocity (currents) profiling, full compensation for speed of sound (with the CastAway-CTD), and an integrated positioning solution.
