The Apache 3 Pro USV
Unmatched Bathymetric Surveys in Shallow Waters
Welcome to the APACHE 3 Pro, a trailblazing compact unmanned surface vehicle (USV) designed meticulously for autonomous bathymetric surveys in shallow water environments. Crafted with a dual-layered carbon fiber hull, this vehicle exudes resilience, promising exceptional impact resistance and unsinkability. Bolstered by an IP67 rating, it ensures a fortress-like protection against dust and water ingress, guaranteeing operational integrity in every circumstance. The ingeniously designed semi-recessed motor not only minimizes water resistance, enabling impressive speeds of up to 6 m/s but also amplifies endurance for prolonged operations.
Advanced Design for Effortless Deployment
Meticulously engineered from macromolecular polyester carbon fiber and Kevlar glass fiber, the APACHE 3 Pro boasts a feather-light weight of merely 10 kg (excluding sensors). This agile construction empowers a single operator to effortlessly navigate diverse remote deployment scenarios, promising versatility and seamless maneuverability across a spectrum of environmental terrains and conditions.
Enhanced Navigational Capabilities
Setting new benchmarks in navigational prowess, the APACHE 3 Pro incorporates a semi-recessed motor and an innovative internal rotor motor design, allowing for a shallower draft and augmenting its agility across various water depths. This unique motor design offers fortified protection, significantly minimizing damage risks and extending the motor’s service life, ensuring sustained performance.
Real-time Monitoring and Security
Empowered by a blend of SIM and network bridge with automatic switching, this vessel assures steadfast communications while seamlessly integrating cloud-based remote monitoring. These features provide unparalleled real-time insights into the APACHE 3 Pro’s status, fostering enhanced control and security. The utilization of 4G and 2.4G networks eliminates distance constraints, facilitating efficient data exchange across diverse operating environments.
Cutting-edge Obstacle Avoidance and Precision under Bridges
The APACHE 3 Pro comes standard with a millimeter-wave automatic obstacle avoidance system, proactively detecting obstacles within a wide 110° angle. Should an obstacle be encountered, the USV autonomously charts a detour course, minimizing the risk of collision and potential damage during operations. Furthermore, it maintains high accuracy even when navigating under bridges, seamlessly compensating for GNSS signal losses and hull sway effects, ensuring consistent high-precision data collection.
Advanced Echosounder for Superior Bathymetric Surveying
Equipped with the standard D270 single-beam echosounder, the APACHE 3 Pro delivers unrivaled depth measurement accuracy. This portable device integrates a built-in water temperature sensor, allowing real-time correction of sound velocity concerning temperature changes, ensuring superior depth measurement accuracy for comprehensive bathymetric surveys.
