Light Weight Coastal Topographic/ Bathymetric Charting System for Naval Unmanned Airborne Vehicles
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
The overall project objective is to develop an autonomous bathymetric/topographic mapping system compatible with a small UAV, with performance equivalent to current manned systems. During Phase 1, an integrated design was developed that is fully compatible with the Navy's selected STUAS platform. Detailed analysis indicates that this compact system is capable of meeting all DoD hydrographic survey requirements, in a package that is a factor of thirty smaller in volume, a factor of fifteen lighter weight, and draws a factor of ten less power than current systems. Fabrication, integration, and flight demonstration will be performed under Phase 2.
