International Submarine Engineering Ltd. (ISE) announced the launch of its Revolutionary Subsea Surveillance Team earlier this month, featuring the integration of its XL UUV and Subsea Docking System. The company states this dynamic duo offers unprecedented range and endurance, making surfacing optional. 

According to ISE, its docking system revolutionizes the management of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) at sea, eliminating the need for challenging and potentially hazardous recovery operations. The ISE dock enables seamless data transfer and recharging while the AUV remains submerged at depths up to 200 meters (656'). With charge rates up to 400 VDC at 120 A and data transfer rates of 400 Mb/s, the dock can be adapted to suit most AUVs on the market.

First introduced with XL UUV, Theseus, deployed to the Arctic in the spring of 1995 to validate transportation logistics, confirm vehicle operations, and to develop cable delivery and recovery techniques, the XL UUV combines proven technology with the versatility and adaptability of ISE’s Explorer line of AUVs. The XL UUV has accumulated thousands of hours of operation worldwide and can be equipped with a wide variety of payloads and sensors from most manufacturers.

International Submarine Engineering Ltd. (ISE) recently celebrated 50 years in business. “This milestone highlights our legacy of achievement and our unwavering commitment to excellence, innovation, and continuous improvement,” the company noted in a statement.
