Sparus II

Sparus II AUV is a multipurpose lightweight hovering vehicle with mission-specific payload area manufactured by IQUA (a spin-off company from the University of Girona). The payload area can be customized by the end-user and with an open software architecture, based on ROS, for mission programming. There will be two Sparus II vehicles participating in the project, one from the University of Girona and another owned by the University of the Balearic Islands that will be referred to as Sparus-II and Turbot, respectively. Although the vehicles have some differences regarding their payload sensors, control surfaces, and computers on board, according to the operation and functionality required by the project, these vehicles can be described as a single type.

REMUS 600

AUVs travel independently through sea water along pre-programmed pathways while measuring horizontal variations in water properties. In 2009 we purchased our first REMUS AUV.
Rebus is a positively buoyant, 2m long, propeller-driven vehicle used for short-duration (max 10 hours), intensive surveys of the ocean down to 600m over distances of around 70km. The REMUS AUV is designed to measure the amount of small-scale turbulent mixing in the ocean as well as temperature, salinity, water velocity and chlorophyll fluorescence.
Rebus has been on missions around Scotland and the Arctic.
