Allow one operator to cope with most of remote deployment conditions. Made of macromolecule polyester carbon fiber and Kevlar fiber-glass weighting 7 kg without sensors. It can be carried by a single person during the entire project from on-site transport, installation, calibration and mission processing.
HIGH PERFORMANCE POCKET-HULLED VESSEL DESIGN
Keeps the hull balanced even in the rapid current situation. With less than 1 m length and pocket-hulled vessel design, the APACHE3 supports operation in shoals, channels and shallow rivers for the bathymetric survey without run aground.
ABSOLUTE LINEAR TECHNOLOGY
Maintain a perfect straight sailing course even in complex current conditions. Integrate high precision GNSS positioning and heading technology to ensure high accuracy bathymetric survey in fully autonomous mode.
QUAD-POLE PROTECTIVE DESIGN
Get rid of twined by fishing nets and aquatic plants in riverways and shallow water. The Apache3 is fitted with quad tough and rigid carbon fiber bars installed in the bottom of the hull to protect propellers.
Featuring pocket-hulled shallow draught design, the APACHE3 is a portable single beam echosounder USV for bathymetric surveys of lakes, inland rivers and coastal areas. Its compact size and lightweight allow one person to operate the system. The APACHE3 USV solution embeds the CHCNAV absolute straight-line technology which enables a fully automatic pre-determined course in autonomous mode in adversed current and flow conditions. The survey projects can be completed in both manual and automatic cruise modes with the maximum speeds of 6 m/s and 3 m/s respectively.
