YSI Webinar | Vehicle Platforms

May 17, 2021

Almost any outdoor application that requires a YSI or SonTek sensor (or both!) can collect more data, safer, faster, and with less expense by deploying sensors on a vehicle platform. YSI collaborated with global experts to design the HYCAT, i3XO, and rQPOD vehicles. These platforms can go anywhere, carrying not only our sensors but also side-scan sonar, advanced DVL, and more.

Our vehicle platforms are used for applications such as:

  • Bathymetric and hydrographic surveys of reservoirs
  • Investigating bridge scour
  • Search and rescue missions
  • Seagrass mapping
  • Harmful algal bloom dynamics
  • Discharge measurements
  • Locating unexploded ordnance

YSI's experts Tom Goucher, Shawn Sneddon, and Nick Martin each introduce the features of the HYCAT, i3XO and rQPOD using real-world case studies.
