The HyDrone™ is a one-man portable, catamaran platform developed for hyrdrographic survey applications. Working in conjunction with the HydroLite™ portable echosounder kit, the HyDrone™ accomplishes the same results as more expensive RC survey systems. The lightweight, wide profile and watertight construction provide stability, ruggedness and portability. It is manufactured from high quality marine materials and components and easily disassembles for transport and shipping. 

Work environments include mines, sewage treatment plants, contaminated lakes, harbors and rivers. 

Remote control of the survey boat is easy using a high-power remote control system that offers up to 2km range, with a survey endurance of over 8 hours at a survey speed of 3 knots on a single battery pack.
