uncrewed surface vehicle

The smart and highly integrated design of the Sonobot 5 enables outstanding one-man transportation and deployment. With powerful thrusters and a full working day battery capacity, the Sonobot 5 represents the smallest and easiest-to-handle autonomous vehicle that can be equipped with a professional multibeam sonar

Debuted in March 2023, the new  EvoLogics Multibeam  for the Sonobot is based on a Norbit OEM solution, an entry-class multibeam sonar with a professional approach. It comes with a high-grade dual GNSS and INS positioning and motion control which is standard for all Norbit echosounders. With 256 beams at 1.45°x1°, a range of over 200 m, and a ping rate of 50 Hz, this system enables professional surveillance that complies with the IHO’s S-44 standard.

The EvoLogics Multibeam is a tailored solution for the Sonobot 5 platform. It offers the advantages of multibeam riverbed mapping in a compact and lightweight unit that seamlessly integrates with the vehicle.
