Teledyne RD Instruments, a global leader in acoustic Doppler current profiling and navigation innovations, has supplied Portugal-based underwater vehicle systems designer and manufacturer OceanScan-MST with five Explorer Doppler velocity logs (DVLs).

The Explorer DVLs have been successfully integrated on OceanScan-MST’s flagship product, the light autonomous underwater vehicle system (LAUV), which is an affordable and innovative one-man portable AUV that can be easily launched, operated and recovered with minimal setup.

“The Explorer DVLs are used for navigation in combination with other modules installed onboard the LAUV, and recently we supplied the Lithuanian Navy with several LAUV systems,” said Alexandre Sousa, engineer and co-founder of OceanScan-MST.

Part of the latest generation of Teledyne RDI’s family of Doppler velocity logs, the Explorer DVL provides high quality navigation aboard small underwater platforms, such as OceanScan-MST’s LAUV.
