GEOSIGHT Take Order of USV

We are delighted to expand our Hydrographic capabilities through the purchase of the REAV-28 USV from HydroSurv.

Unmanned Surface Vehicle

Our environmentally centric approach and deployment of modern survey technology combine with our first order for an Uncrewed Surface Vehicle (USV) from HydroSurv Unmanned Survey (UK) Ltd scheduled for delivery early next year.

New for 2021, the REAV-28 is a 2.8m USV platform of catamaran hull form with a fully-electric propulsion system, which may be deployed and recovered from foreshores and beaches for a range of hydrographic and environmental survey applications. Based on HydroSurv’s smaller REAV-16, the larger vehicle has improved open-water sea-keeping and a more powerful propulsion system with greater endurance. In addition, the USV has a fully-integrated SVP winch and a series of enhanced and new control features.

The latest investment will enable us to reduce our carbon emissions from survey operations and offer a non-invasive survey acquisition tool which may be used in the presence of environmentally sensitive receivers. Additionally, the USV will reduce the need for surveyors to work afloat and reduce costs of mobilisation and operations, enabling us to pass on increased value to our customers.

Having thoroughly researched the market, GEOSIGHT have found the right partner in HydroSurv, to move forward with, and look forward to allying the REAV-28 with our NORBIT iWBMS high-resolution multibeam echosounder.

“We’re excited to be working with Brian and his team at GEOSIGHT on this new REAV-28, which brings with it a series of new capabilities for HydroSurv’s smaller USV platforms. Working in close collaboration with GEOSIGHT will enable us to draw upon their hydrographic survey expertise and deliver a best-in-class solution for readily-portable USVs.” David Hull, Founder & CEO, HydroSurv.
