Apache 3 Pro USV

Introducing the APACHE 3 Pro—an agile, compact unmanned surface vehicle (USV) meticulously engineered for autonomous bathymetric surveys in shallow waters. Featuring a robust double-layered carbon fiber hull, this vessel embodies durability, offering exceptional impact resistance and unsinkability. With an IP67 rating, it ensures complete protection against dust and water, ensuring operational reliability in all conditions. The innovative semi-recessed motor design not only reduces water resistance, allowing speeds of up to 6 m/s, but also enhances endurance for prolonged missions.

Engineered with macromolecular polyester carbon fiber and Kevlar glass fiber, the APACHE 3 Pro weighs a mere 10 kg (excluding sensors). This lightweight construction empowers a single operator to effortlessly navigate diverse remote deployment scenarios, ensuring versatility and ease of maneuvering across various environmental terrains.

The APACHE 3 Pro integrates a semi-recessed motor and an innovative internal rotor motor design, enhancing its maneuverability across different water depths. The motor’s unique design bolsters protection, reducing the risk of damage and extending its operational lifespan, ensuring sustained performance in rigorous conditions.

Featuring SIM and network bridge capabilities, this vessel ensures robust communications while seamlessly integrating cloud-based remote monitoring. This enables real-time status updates, providing engineers with enhanced control and security. Leveraging 4G and 2.4G networks, it facilitates efficient data exchange across varied operational environments.

Equipped with a millimeter-wave automatic obstacle avoidance system, the APACHE 3 Pro autonomously detects obstacles within a wide 110° angle, charting alternate routes to minimize collision risks during missions. It maintains consistent accuracy when navigating under bridges, compensating for GNSS signal losses and hull sway effects, ensuring precise data collection in challenging environments.

Featuring the standard D270 single-beam echosounder, this USV guarantees unparalleled depth measurement accuracy. Its portable design includes a built-in water temperature sensor, facilitating real-time correction of sound velocity concerning temperature changes, ensuring superior depth measurement accuracy for detailed bathymetric surveys.
