Teledyne Gavia to formally introduce SeaRaptor AUV in April



Teledyne Gavia has announced that it will formally introduce its new 6000-meter rated AUV, SeaRaptor, in April.

SeaRaptor incorporates a variety of Teledyne components, including ascent and descent weight releases, multi-beam echosounders, obstacle avoidance multi-beam sonar (Teledyne RESON, Denmark) and Current, Temperature, and Depth sensor (CTD) (Teledyne RD Instruments, San Diego, CA).

Teledyne Gavia notes that the first vehicle delivered also carried an Edgetech Side Scan Sonar with Dynamic Focus capability, an iXblue Phins 6K INS system, and a CathX Camera and strobe system.

“Teledyne is excited to formally introduce the market to SeaRaptor, our new deep rated AUV,” says Thomas Altshuler, vice president and group general manager for the Teledyne Marine Vehicle group.

“In SeaRaptor, the Teledyne Marine team has introduced a high performance AUV capable of carrying the most advance marine sensors available in the market. We have already delivered our first vehicle and see significant opportunities for SeaRaptor.”
