AUV Remus 100

The workhorse of our submarine platforms has a large history of development. This makes it a robust, highly reliable instrument.

The Remus 100 has its own software for mission planning. Its modularity enables it to include new instruments on board. The vehicle is heavy for a person to carry it. A metallic frame is thus necessary to set it in the water.
