Feeding operation

Cruising a fixed area, such as in a large fish farm can feeding automatically.

Countermeasure against injurious bird.

Can cruise on the water for a long time and threat sound to prevent the birds from staying.

Security

By GPS positioning, a made it possible to operate safely at night. By installing a night vision camera, clear images can be sent to remote areas even at night, and users can switch from automatic operation to remote operation arbitrarily.

Futures

This system is employs a "series hybrid" which contains an electric outboard motor and power generator. Allows for automatic movement based on GPS positioning and route data information.

Navigation performance

Able to move forward and backwards, as well as turn left and right as basic movement functions.
Also, an automatic anchor machine is provided and you can cast anchor at any places.

Expandability

Internal combustion engine is used as the power source, a running time of maximum 120 hours, it is possible to a maximum payload is 150kg.
For example, it can have various extended functions such as sensors and cameras for water quality and environmental survey, and gathering seawater and freshwater samples at any places.
