Press release date: June 6, 2014

DOE, Inc. (Deep Ocean Engineering) announced they have added two new vehicles to their product line, the dual hull H-1750 and the mono hull I-1650. Both vehicles are controlled wirelessly by a dedicated WiFi link and have ranges up to 2km. For user controlled navigation, HD video is transmitted back to the pilot box mounted monitor and is used for obstacle avoidance. GPS enabled autonomous movement is also an option where the flip of a switch will send the vehicle onto a predetermined path for a multitude of sampling techniques such as SVP, ADCP, and CTD or even harbor security.

The H-1750 is a Catamaran style vessel with two V-bow boat hulls (not pontoons) which are perfect for navigating rough or choppy seas. The thrusters are fixed in place rather than articulating which makes for a rugged design, and ease of handling comparable to ROVs. The two boat hulls have floatation fore and storage aft where powerful, long lasting Li-ion batteries are stored. For shipment, disassembly is as easy as removing the thrusters and storing them within the boat hulls, removing 4 latches, and unscrewing 8 thumb screws to completely take apart this vehicle. Shipping is in 3 lightweight aluminum cases and can be checked as luggage for a plane flight. The Catamaran design makes it easy to add a multitude of 3rd party options such as sonar or a winch.

The I-1650 is a mono hull style vessel with a standard V-bow design boat hull.

"Make no mistake, this is not a model or toy RC boat, it’s an actual boat built to the same specifications as manned surface vessels but in a scaled down version," said sales engineer, A.J. Cecchettini.

Each new model is also scalable and be on the lookout for larger and smaller versions soon. These models were a hit at Ocean Business 2013 in South Hampton, UK and are suitable additions to the DOE family.
