SuperBathy, bathymetric drone

Bathymetric drone catamaran

The SuperBathy is an automatic catamaran drone with a dual technology of aerial or aquatic propulsion. Thanks to a doubled autonomy compared to its predecessor, this drone can be used during 10 hours of mission. Its completely new waterproof design allows it to be compatible with a LiDAR system for scanning banks and bridges. In addition to underwater topography, the SuperBathy opens you to the world of water analysis and underwater imaging. Floats are completely redesigned to double the carrying capacity. They are now equipped with two twin motors that allow you to work in difficult current conditions. The motors are redundant which offers a very high tolerance to malfunction. The SuperBathy is more jobs, more autonomy and more security!

The different sensors

– The echosounder
– The 16 and 32 beams LiDAR
– Themultiparameter probe for water analysis
– The SONAR Side Scan


SuperBathy not only helps in monitoring ports, marinas, sea areas, rivers, creeks, lakes and ponds or lagoons but also helps to identify critical areas or dangerous objects for navigation. Finally, it allows periodic monitoring of siltation and supervision of marine sites by performing calculations of cubatures and editing DTMs (Digital Terrain Models).

Precision : Thanks to the different sensor choices we offer (echo sounder, 16 or 32 beams LiDAR, multiparameter probe, SONAR Side Scan), you can acquire mesh data from just a few centimeters up to a meter.

Safety : With a weight of 6,8 kg and reduced set-up time, SuperBathy requires only one operator (instead of the traditional 2 or 3 operators) and may be operated directly from the bank.

Productivity : With manual and automatic steering, SuperBathy helps you survey your sites 10 times faster than with a boat.
