The Remus 100 is a compact, lightweight AUV designed for operation in coastal areas up to 100m in depth.

The vehicle can be configured to fit a range of standard and/or customer-specified sensors and system options to meet unique autonomous mission requirements.

The AUVs can be used in hydrographical surveys, harbour security operations, debris field mapping, scientific sampling and mapping.

Hydroid Europe director Graham Lester said the vehicles have been proven to withstand the harsh conditions related with Norwegian waters.
