About AUV Modules: Multibeam Profilers, Gap Fill and Engineered to order (ETO)

Teledyne BlueView is recognized as the leading manufacturer of integrated Multibeam Profiling sonar systems for high resolution data collection. Our unique technology allows BlueView to offer some of the most technologically advanced, light-weight, low-power systems for AUV manufacturers and operators. Standard OEM modules are available through most AUV manufactures, and Engineered To Order (ETO) solutions are also available to accommodate non-standard AUV solutions. The Multebeam Profiler and SmartCore Data-logger combination provide real-time profiles and storage of data for post-mission review.
