Denmark transferred autonomous hydrographic systems produced by Maritime Robotics to Ukraine as part of international aid. The complexes are equipped with SeaBat T51-R echo sounders, which allow to collect accurate data about the underwater environment and identify hidden threats to ships

This was reported by ArmyInform information agency.

As the agency states citing, Roman Honcharenko, head of the hydrographic service of the AFU Navy, the system is equipped with a multipath echo sounder designed to survey the bottom relief and detect underwater objects.

"The obtained bathymetric information allows us to know the depth of the bottom with a density through every centimeter. Accordingly, we can be aware of the existing underwater obstacles, choose the right parking places for our watercraft, passage options, vessel transit routes," Roman Honcharenko said.

It should be noted, that the unmanned surface systems are manufactured by Maritime Robotics (Norway) includes the SeaBat T51 multipath echo sounder manufactured by Teledyne Marine (Denmark).

"The SeaBat T51-R is a revolutionary multipath echo sounder. Its unsurpassed 800 kHz technology allows to shoot with a high level of detail, while maintaining an amazing shooting efficiency with a wide coverage band. It also has a flexible lower frequency range of 350-430 kHz," the message says.

As Defense Express reported earlier, russians in Crimea were so afraid of Ukraine’s USV that they deployed rare DP-62 Damba systems in Sevastopol.
