micro-AUV for passive acoustic monitoring




YUCO-PAM is micro-AUV is equipped with Porpoise recorder from RsAqua. With a selectable sampling rates up to 384kHz and storage capacity up to 4TB. The Porpoise recorder can be whether programmed separately or triggered by AUV and can synchronize its recordings with the YUCO-PAM.
Therefore, YUCO-PAM micro-AUV is capable of monitoring whether anthropogenic noise such as pile driving, ships, as well as monitoring marine mammal even in the high frequencies such as the harbour porpoises.

Thanks to the SEAPLAN software developed by SEABER, a varied number of navigation patterns adapted to noise monitoring can be used.

UCO-PAM embedded INX navigation system allows it to navigate accurately without requiring external elements. This makes it ideal and totally silent for noise recording.

YUCO PAM is an innovative autonomous solution for passive acoustic monitoring.
Instead of a mounted hydrophone it is a fully autonomous recorder that is embedded in the YUCO-PAM micro-AUV.

YUCO-PAM is provided with all the necessary functions to be ready-to-deploy:

  • INX Navigation system
  • SEAPLAN Software
  • Embedded rechargeable batteries
  • Field case and accessories

YUCO-PAM micro-AUV is whether capable of performing continuous noise recording while it navigates. It is also capable on specific mode to perform “silent” recordings at determined locations. It can also resurface and take GPS position of each of its recordings.
