USA: Hydroid Announces Training Session for REMUS 100 AUV


Hydroid, Inc., a subsidiary of Kongsberg Maritime, the leading manufacturer of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs), announced that the company’s first ever Open Enrollment Training will be held during the week of September 12, 2011, in Pocasset, Massachusetts, USA.

During the September Open Enrollment Training, Hydroid’s highly experienced and trained technicians will walk participants though all aspects of the REMUS 100 system, with a focus on basic operations and maintenance training, ideal for new and existing operators of REMUS systems looking for initial or refresher training.

The training course is an intensive 5-day program designed to provide a maximum of 8 participants with the knowledge and understanding of the basic system specifications; components; capabilities and limitations; the skills and hands-on experience of the operations and maintenance of the REMUS system. Trainees will complete the training program with the skills necessary to properly and safely operate the REMUS system.

We recognized that it would be beneficial for our customers, both financially and logistically, to be able to sign up individuals for open enrollment training,” said Christopher von Alt, President and one of the co-founders of Hydroid. “Our Open Enrollment Training will give our customers the flexibility they need.”

Hydroid’s REMUS AUVs are modular and may be fitted with a large number of different types of sensors and have been used to aid in hydrographic surveys, harbor security operations, debris field mapping, scientific sampling and mapping, as well as many basic and applied research programs funded by ONR, DARPA and the United Kingdom Ministry of Defense. With over 200 vehicles in the field, Hydroid is currently the AUV market leader with systems in use by thirteen NATO and other navies around the world.
