Canadian company 2G Robotics announced it has been selected to supply AUV-based laser scanning, stills imaging, and illumination solutions for the Royal Norwegian Navy’s Hugin AUVs.

2G Robotics will work on the latest contract that will see Kongsberg Maritime deliver four AUVs to the Norwegian Defence Materiel Agency (NDMA).

The AUV’s will have a depth rating of 3,000 meters, and will be equipped with advanced sensors for mine hunting. The deliveries include systems for planning, execution and analysis of missions, and launch and recovery systems both for the Navy’s mine hunting vessels, as well as in mobile containers.

2G Robotics will be delivering its dynamic underwater laser scanning solution for integration into the UAVs.

“The point cloud results captured from 2G’s underwater laser scanners on Hugin platforms over the past several years have demonstrated the capacity of the ULS-500 PRO to become the industry standard for high-resolution subsea survey,” the company said. “By developing the technology specifically with the intention of AUV integration, 2G Robotics has been able to take advantage of scientific advances to create a reliable platform for automated surveying.”
