Hydroid, a company founded in 2001 by the inventors of the REMUS AUV, also known as autonomous underwater vehicle, is a technological leader in the field of advanced maritime robotics.
Hydroid’s AUV’s are capable of diving to depths up to 6,000 meters and exploring shallow waters and areas that are difficult to navigate.
With AUV’s, the threat that human divers would face if they were to be working in a mine field is eliminated.
Hydroid’s AUV’s have helped “solve plane and ship disaster mysteries, including locating Air France Flight 447 wreckage and generating 3D mapping of the Titanic.”
