NORBIT introduces an Autopilot Solution for USVs and ASVs equipped with a NORBIT integrated multibeam echo sounder. NORBIT AutoPilot enables fully automated line planning without operator intervention. The vehicle is remotely controlled using NORBIT’s data acquisition software DCT, which initiates data recording upon reaching the first survey line. Once the current line is completed, the USV will seamlessly transition to the next survey line. This innovative solution offers a convenient and efficient method for collecting survey data.
