SPH Engineering Announces a Bathymetric Drone Solution
SPH Engineering announces the launch of a new product to make bathymetric surveys of inland and coastal water. An Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) drone integrated with an Echo Sounder is time- & cost-efficient and suitable for mapping, measuring and inspecting tasks as well as environmental monitoring.
“Since autumn 2018 we have been getting bathymetry-related requests. Analyzing about 150 inquiries we have come to the conclusion that a drone-based solution could open a new business opportunity for drone service companies to do bathymetry surveys of coastal and inland water especially those for industrial needs. Compared with a standard approach using a boat or an unmanned surface vehicle, a drone could save a lot for its user. An Echo Sounder itself could be integrated into a client’s drone with no need to purchase additional equipment. Moreover, it is small and easy to transport and operate. At the same time, such research method guarantees data accuracy and employee safety,” Alexey Dobrovolskiy, CTO of SPH Engineering, comments.
