The Gavia Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) is a self-contained low logistics, modular survey platform capable of delivering high-quality data while operating from vessels of opportunity or from the shore.
The AUV's modularity makes it easily reconfigurable, even between divers. The vehicles' ease of use and versatility sets it apart from other systems on the market. The Gavia AUV system can serve a multitude of purposes without sacrificing performance or data quality.
The system is field-proven for applications that include MCM, SAR, and ASW training. The field-changeable and easily transportable modules make it well suited for rapid response to emerging requirements.
The Gavia has a length of 1.8 m (or 4.5m, configuration dependent), a weight in the air between 50 and 130 kg (configuration dependent), it can reach a top speed of 5.5 knots.
