Reygar launches autopilot system for USVs

Maritime monitoring and control systems provider Reygar has launched an integrated autopilot and mission planning system for unmanned survey vessels (USVs). The V-PILOT system uses an embedded vessel controller and a shore-side user interface to connect to existing GPS, thrusters, steering and associated command systems. - OEDigital

Engineered to serve an offshore wind industry that is exploring new waters that are often deeper and farther from shore, the technology draws from more than a decade of offshore wind support vessel monitoring experience thanks to Reygar’s BareFLEET platform reporting vessel health, performance and navigational data on close to a third of all operating crew transfer vessels, combined with its StemTIDE dynamic positioning system. It has been tested on HydroSurv’s unmanned vessel pilot project funded by Innovate UK.

Our pilot project with HydroSurv has shown what innovation can do to improve the cost, safety and reliability of offshore wind surveying and we look forward to expanding our V-PILOT offering to meet the needs of this ever-evolving market.

Chris Huxley-Reynard, Reygar managing director

The V-PILOT control system can be used for small and large unmanned vessels for both inshore and coastal survey and inspection operations, Reygar said,.

System reliability, integrity and economy are critical factors which must be satisfied to achieve trust of remote and autonomous survey necessary for widespread adoption and Reygar’s system was subjected to significant on-water validation over the two-year project

David Hull, founder and CEO of HydroSurv

The system combines mission planning features with autonomous mission following and flexible survey payload interface capabilities. It consists of an embedded controller on the vessel and a shoreside user interface, with the controller interfacing with the vessel's existing GPS, thrusters, and steering systems.
