L3Harris OceanServer Power Solutions, Sensors and Robotics
L3Harris OceanServer is a manufacturer of autonomous, lightweight unmanned undersea vehicles (UUVs) used in military, research and commercial missions, including mine countermeasures (MCM), hydrography, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), environmental monitoring, anti-sub warfare, research, survey and search and recovery.
Built with leading-edge technology and a battlespace understanding, the Iver family of vehicles are capable, modular, reliable and field-proven.
Fully autonomous underwater vehicles for naval applications
The L3Harris OceanServer Iver3-580 is a fully autonomous underwater vehicle (AUVs) capable of operating unattended for up to ten hours and 100m-200m deep while carrying a variety of sensors. The payload sensors can produce detailed bathymetry, side-scan imagery, magnetometer, water quality and camera systems (video and stills).
The Iver3 AUV is an affordable, commercial vehicle used by customers around the globe for sensor development, water quality, general survey work, sub-surface security and research.
The portability of the Iver3, along with high-fidelity collocated data, makes the platform ideal for detailed water column, bottom characteristics and target information missions.
L3Harris OceanServer has partnered with essential hardware and software companies to bring the most complete UUV solution to the market for all of these requirements.
The innovative AUVs are single-person-portable and include simple point-and-click mission planning. The on-board rechargeable battery allows the system to operate for ten hours (depending on environmental conditions and payload) and supports battery section swapping for continuous operation. With this endurance, the Iver3 is capable of covering more than 20km (12 miles) of survey lines on a single charge.
The Iver3 can be rapidly programmed and deployed to search a large area with little time or effort by the operator. The platform uses a series of sophisticated sensors to navigate the pre-programmed path while maintaining a constant height off the bottom, regardless of the water conditions.
Rechargeable unmanned undersea vehicles
The Iver4 PW UUV offers users a new 300m workhorse system featuring long duration capability and no shipping restrictions with L3Harris OceanServer’s lithium-free standard design.
The Iver4 comes standard with rechargeable NiMH battery packs supporting up to 20hrs of runtime or > 74km mission duration for long ingress/egress missions.
The Iver4 PW is the first in a family of advanced UUVs to address a wide variety of customer missions, including defence applications such as multi-domain intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR), anti-submarine warfare (ASW), as well as seabed and mine warfare.
This new system offers survey customers a commercial platform that can be easily shipped on common carriers without the concern of hazardous goods shipping.
The Iver4 comes standard with industry-leading tracking and safety communications, precise repeatable measurement, high-accuracy navigation, as well as low-drag side scan and bathymetry transducers.
Point-and-click mission planning software
Vector Map software supports mission planning for multiple vehicle missions on any geo-referenced 2D surface, S57, UAV Images, or raster charts. All missions are planned using simple point-and-click methodology.
Following mission completion, VectorMap can be used to log data and plot or export data from other tools. Mission reports can be generated in minutes. VectorMap has a full-contact manager tool for marking sonar targets and other items of interest. All sensor data can be overlaid on VectorMap during post-processing.
