Marine robotics manufacturer Hydroid Inc., a subsidiary of Kongsberg Maritime, announced the release of the new REMUS M3V compact, one-man portable autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV).
Low cost and ready to use right out of the box, this micro AUV supports numerous applications including search and survey; intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR); marine research; and multi-vehicle missions. The REMUS M3V can dive up to 300 meters in depth. It is an A-size (36" x 4.875") vehicle with no fins or appendages outside the A-size envelope and can be used for multi-domain deployments.
"The AUV market is rapidly evolving and the heart of underwater exploration. At Hydroid, we continue to grow our product offerings as well as advance the technologies and capabilities of our existing vehicles," said Duane Fotheringham, president of Hydroid. "The REMUS M3V benefits from all of the development and code-base work that has gone into our REMUS 100 AUV. It is a game-changing vehicle. Our vehicle is fully engineered, designed and integrated utilizing proven REMUS software. The thought, design and regression testing has all been done to create a robust product that customers can rely on."

The REMUS M3V can achieve speeds of 10 knots and is equipped with an articulated tail control system and a positioning and navigation system in the standard configuration. REMUS M3V also has a variable center of gravity allowing it to operate in a buoy mode. Outfitted with side scan sonar, the REMUS M3V has a multifunctional tail antenna that includes Iridium, Wi-Fi and a Flasher. The REMUS M3V is a low-logistics system that is compatible with existing survey and AUV capabilities.
