Houston Mechatronics has unveiled the company’s revolutionary new subsea robot, Aquanaut.
Aquanaut is a multipurpose subsea robot which employs a patented shape-shifting transformation from an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) to a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV), removing the need for vessels and tethers.
The vehicle enables both the efficient collection of data over long distances as well as manipulation of subsea objects at a significantly lower cost than today’s technology.
“We firmly believe that this technology is a revolution in subsea robotics. Aquanaut, and our tightly coupled over-the-horizon software Commander, enables Houston Mechatronics to deliver more feature rich, safer subsea services to commercial and defense customers that demand it,” said Houston Mechatronics CEO Matthew Ondler.
