The HarborScout is one of the best-selling and the most popular unmanned marine systems available in the market today. It features a simple yet effective design and measures 1.5m that is just the perfect fit in the bed of a pickup or shipped to various destinations with minimal costs. Make no mistake about its performance since the Harborscout is an avid performer that is always ready to tackle the most demanding of operating conditions and gets the job done. Powerful thrust is provided using a 9kg thrust motor that is a relentless and able performer. Operational power is made possible via 32ah 14.8 volt lithium polymer battery that ensures an impeccable performance for 12-24 hours if required. The recommended safe cruise speeds are0.75 m/s to 1.2 m/s while the maximum speed is at 2.3 m/s.
ADVANCED AUTOPILOT NAVIGATION AND POINT/CLICK MISSION PLANNING
This marine system features a fully autonomous GPS waypoint based navigation system that is possible with real time telemetry link. With the aid of a laptop or a supported smart tablet one has access to real time point and click on map control, create or execute complicated waypoint based missions as well as the option to view live telemetry and location information. The Mission planner is an open source software that can be used to determine the area to be surveyed and the navigational plan is automatically created in a few seconds with just a few basic inputs from the user. New missions and plans can be uploaded and commands can be sent in real time even when the boat has already begun its cruise. This is possible with the included 915MHZ telemetry module with over a mile of controllable range. Cellular telemetry is also available if required.
SMART AWARENESS TO SITUATIONS
A smart controller that is commonly used in aircrafts, this unique feature contains a vast array of sensors that aids in a flawless performance at all times regardless of the situations. The wide array of sensors include a redundant IMU, Gyroscopes, Accelerometers, Barometer, Compass, Voltage and Current monitors. These intuitive range of sensors provide a comprehensive real time on-screen instrumentation as seen on most aircrafts. The resulting metrics are logged onto a micro SD card that can later be downloaded for analysis or used if required again.
HarborScout can accommodate any type of payload according to your situational requirements or it can be professionally integrated with the following range of recommended payloads.
CELLULAR TELEMETRY AND VIDEO ( $500 Upgrade)
In order to relay and control the telemetry levels through the use of internet, this system is the one stop solution that gets it done with ease. It allows office users to direct the boat in real time, progress monitoring as well as viewing the high quality on demand video from anywhere in this world with the use of a high speed internet connection. If the cellular is unavailable, the smart system can automatically switch to 900MHz telemetry for local control inputs whenever required.
LOWRANCE ELITE 5 TI SONAR SYSTEM ( $1,100 Upgrade)
This is the ultimate solution for bathymetry. It is capable of saving the locations, side scan details and depth sounder recordings onto a Micro SD card at the same time. These details can later be used to process Bathymetric charts or visual sidescan orthomosaics using exclusive software such as Reefmaster, SonarTRX or the Hypack.
RTK UPGRADE ( $950 Upgrade)
Achieve easy relative levels that are accurate within a cm for your lowrance system. This upgrade is capable of feeding GPS data into the Sonar unit via NEMA0183. The unit includes a base and a rover which are designed to communicate corrections over the telemetry links of the boat.
WATER QUALITY ANALYSIS PACKAGE ( $1,800 Upgrade)
This unique and useful package adds the water quality sensors onto the mainframe of the boat. This can then help to save or log the results to a USB flash drive that can be reviewed later. The sensors include Ph, ORP, Dissolved oxygen, Conductivity and temperature sensors.
BRIDGED WIFI NETWORK ( $385 Upgrade)
Using a smart tablet, this unique feature lets you view the sidescreen results in real time. With an operational range of 200-300m, this is a great option when dealing with sunken items in great depths.
THERMAL CAMERA SYSTEM ( $4,500 Upgrade)
This is another useful addition to the boat that comprises a gimbal stabilized thermal camera with a resolution of 312 x 256. The video can either be accessed via a high speed internet connection that is devoid of the cellular upgrade that is stated above. The same video can also be viewed with the included 1.2GHz video link system.
