The HUGIN Superior AUV System is the most capable commercially available AUV. It offers the best data quality and coverage coupled with the most accurate navigation and positioning
solution there is. Packaged as a complete system, HUGIN Superior carries more sensors than ever before over greater distances enhancing productivity and cost effectiveness. HUGIN Superior is simply the
best AUV you can get.
HUGIN Superior is available in a single fixed-configuration, rated to 6000 meter depths.
The HUGIN Superior is the most capable AUV today. As a result the payload sensor suite is fixed. It includes HISAS 1032 dual receiver, EM2040 Mk2, camera, laser profiler, sub-bottom profiler, magnetometer
plus sensors for methane, carbon dioxide, oxygen and more.
HUGIN Superior is also equipped with the very latest capabilities including autonomous pipeline tracking, terrain navigation and single beacon underwater transponder protocol navigation.
In-mission navigation is enhanced by the introduction of MicroNavigation improving real-time accuracy to better than 0.04% of distance travelled.
HUGIN Superior can achieve area coverage rates of ~4.5km2 per hour for seabed imagery and bathymetry. This is further enhanced by longer mission durations and rapid on-deck turn-arounds.
Equipped with an unrivalled positioning capability, HUGIN Superior can operate fully autonomously releasing the support ship to conduct concurrent activities.
