REMUS (Remote Environmental Monitoring UnitS) 100 is a compact, light-weight, autonomous underwater vehicle designed for operation in coastal environments up to 100 meters in depth. The REMUS 100 can be configured to include a wide variety of standard and/or customer specified sensors and system options to meet your unique autonomous mission requirements.

The REMUS 600 AUV was designed through funding from the Office of Naval Research to support the Navy’s growing need for operations requiring extended endurance, increased payload capacity, and greater operating depth. The REMUS 600 boasts the same proven software and electronic subsystems found in our highly successful REMUS 100 AUV, with a depth rating and increased capabilities that take autonomous operations to the next level.

The REMUS 3000 is similar to the REMUS-600 in vehicle size, however this vehicle, constructed out of titanium,
can swim to much deeper depths and it carries a more advanced sensor
package for underwater mapping and imaging. Two vehicles are currently
being engineered in our lab and will contain dual frequency Edgetech
sidescan sonars for high resolution sonar imagery and dual digital
camera systems for maximum coverage and mutlidimensional image
mapping. The REMUS-3000s will also have inertial navigation systems
(Kearfott T-24), phased array ADCPs, Imagenex pencil beam forward
looking sonars, optical backscattering sensors, conductivity,
temperature and pressure sensors.

The REMUS 6000 was designed under
a cooperative program involving the Naval Oceanographic
Office, the Office of Naval Research, and the Woods
Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in support of
deep-water autonomous operations. The REMUS 6000 boasts
the same proven software and electronic subsystems found
in our highly successful REMUS 100 AUV, with a depth
rating, endurance, and payload that allow for autonomous
operations in up to 6000 meters of water.

Another larger version of REMUS, TIV was recently developed for New York City's Department of Environmental Protection. OSL engineers at WHOI designed TIV to navigate and document the condition of a 72-km aqueduct that provides 65 percent of the drinking water to the metropolitan NYC area. The vehicle successfully navigated through the water-filled tunnel while taking and recording about 186,000 digital still images of the interior tunnel walls during its 15-hour trip.
