ECA Robotics, a specialist in the domain of unmanned vehicles, will be exhibiting at Ocean Business 2013, taking place in Southampton, UK, on 9-11 April.

During Ocean Business, ECA Robotics will exhibit its light AUV ALISTER9, a mock-up of its multi-mission USV INSPECTOR MkII, a ROV H300, as well as the ecological, 300m-rated electric manipulator arm, ARM 5E Mini, for very small ROVs.

The autonomous vehicles are tuned to perform with Triton Imaging Inc. software in order to acquire, process, visualise and interpret data coming from different sensors such as side scan sonars, SAS, multi-beam echo sounders, sub-bottom profilers, and swath bathymetry systems.

Triton Imaging and ECA Robotics are giving a paper on the acquisition, quality control and processing of multi-sensor survey data involving autonomous vehicles at the meeting of the Hydrographic Society of UK on 9 April 2013, after the Ocean Business show.

Triton's experience in sonar acquisition and processing software, coupled with ECA's cutting-edge development of unmanned maritime vehicles (USVs and AUVs), has resulted in fully-integrated robotic systems capable of performing the full suite of tasks required in modern survey operations. The cooperation's impressive results will be presented in this paper.

Triton Imaging Inc. will also be conducting:

  • Introductory session on its processing software on 10 April at 12am
  • In-depth training session at Students Centre Level 1 (Rm 121/05) on 11 April at 10.30am

The ECA vehicles and Triton's software will be on display at Ocean Business in booth N9.

ECA Robotics produces AUVs, USVs and ROVs for hydrography, oceanography, survey, offshore, MCM, REA, RECCE and homeland security.
