Our HUGIN Autonomous Underwater Vehicles - AUV offer the ultimate in autonomous
remote subsea survey capability. These free-swimming autonomous underwater vehicles are characterised
by great manoeuvrability and high accuracy of stabilisation. Hydrodynamic shape,
accurate instruments and excellent battery capacity makes these AUV's ideal choices.
HUGIN is available in several configurations and depth ratings. The main depth ratings are:
- 3000 meter
- 4500 meter
- 6000 meter
Customer selectable payload configurations
Because our HUGIN autonomous underwater vehicles can function without tethers,
cables, or remote control, they have a multitude of applications in oceanography,
environmental monitoring, and underwater resource studies. A key element in the
HUGIN concept is the application of a common technology that makes the systems adaptable
for navy and commercial applications. Our modular design allows different payload
configurations, depending on the customers needs.

Our AUV history
In the mid-eighties we developed a small Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV)
for technology and test purposes. In the early 1990s the HUGIN project was started as a cooperation
between Statoil, Norwegian Defence Research Establishment (FFI), Norsk Undervannsintervensjon
(NUI) and KONGSBERG.
