HOUSTON – UTEC Survey has successfully completed a systems acceptance test of a sub-bottom profiles module for the GAVIA AUV. The addition of the Teledyne Benthos Chirp III gives the AUV the capability to do pre-engineering surveys for subsea pipelines, umbilical, and cable routes.

The GAVIA AUV’s design allows the end-user to attach an individual sensor package or a combination of packages, including multi-beam (MBES), side-scan (SSS) or sub-bottom profiler (SBP), along with an inertial navigation module, says Trevor Hughes, director of Sales and Marketing.
