Missing Person Search

Strategic Robotic Systems (SRS) assisted in locating a missing person.  The missing person was reported to have drowned in close to 60 meters (200ft) of water with only the approximate last known location available.  Statistically the average person in calm water will not drift more than 1 meter per meter of depth.  Using the approximate entrance to the water it was possible to create a radius to search.

Sidescan Sonar Update

The initial FUSION design saw sidescan sonar transducers potted into the transducer pod underneath the vehicle and was only available on the Hybrid AUV version of FUSION.  A design change has been made that removes the sidescan sonar transducers from the underside and allows them to be mounted to the picatinny rails on the side.  The transducers can be mounted in a couple minutes and requires no tools.  All FUSION vehicles will now be sidescan ready where the transducers can be purchased at a later date.

L3 OceanServer Conference

Strategic Robotic Systems (SRS) was pleased to be invited to participate in the inaugural L3 OceanServer User Conference held in San Diego, CA.  The user conference was established to share user success stories, Iver product development and third party integrations.  Throughout the first day were a number of informative presentations from Iver operators and the L3 OceanServer team.  SRS also presented about the use of FUSION as a reacquisition ROV with seemless data exchange between Iver and FUSION.

FUSION - Dual 5 Function Manipulators

Strategic Robotic Systems (SRS) worked with The Blueprint Lab to integrate dual five (5) function arms called Reach 5 on the FUSION.  The unique Reach 5 arms provide responsive, multifunction capability to the FUSION.  A custom quick release skid was designed that attaches to the picatinny rails on FUSION in only a few minutes.

SRS Releases New FUSION Model

Due to high customer demand SRS has released a new variant of the FUSION system with a dedicated ROV only version.  Beginning in November SRS will offer to versions of the FUSION, FUSION-HYBRID and FUSION-ROV.  The decision to add the ROV only version is due to a high client demand for a highly capable, next generation ROV system with supervisory controls where the AUV functionality is not required.  Look through the website and learn more about the differences between the two systems.
