The first commercial operation for this new "Echo Mapper" AUV is a 2,000 line-kilometer survey to provide high resolution seafloor mapping from 100 to over 900 meters water depth near Los Angeles, California, USA. The survey, now underway, will provide permitting and engineering data for a deepwater port application planned by Woodside Natural Gas, Inc.
The Echo Mapper is relatively small and lightweight so that the entire system can be shipped worldwide on commercial aircraft to be quickly available for mobilization onto local vessels of opportunity. The AUV is based in Seattle, Washington, USA.
