The MUNIN AUV / autonomous marine robot brings together the commercial success of the HUGIN with the reliable modularity of the REMUS 600 vehicles in a single platform. MUNIN retains mission flexibility by having different
payload sensor modules along with the capability of running SSS, MBE, SBP and camera together.
High performance in a small platform
Designed to retain a high level of performance in a small platform, MUNIN has a comprehensive navigation and positioning capability that can tie the data to a meaningful georeferenced solution. The
capability is further enhanced by the autonomous pipe tracking software, making survey and inspection work easy for operators.
No calibration required
After transport the vehicle is assembled and mobilisation time is minimised by the configuration of the navigation and acoustic sensors. The IMU, DVL, MBE and SSS are located in the same module that
is calibrated at the factory. This removes the need for calibration measurement during re-assembly and guarantees consistent data quality and position accuracy.
Vehicle status, location and real time data are transmitted to the operator during supervised missions via the cNODE transponder and surface HiPAP USBL system. This makes provides a level of quality
control and mission confidence unique in the low logistics AUV world.
