Sensor Suites and Our Engineering Challenge

Whether it is an ASV, AUV, ROV or indeed a sea mammal such as a seal or dolphin, all instrumented vehicle types need various sensors to meet and maintain design criteria or operational demands.  The challenge for us as manufacturers is to match those demands with sensor designs and packages that meet varying specifications of size, weight, material, depth, power constraints and budgets without making each requirement a “one off” (as there are of course additional cost and time implications associated with a ‘one off’).

Valeport has so far met this challenge with varying designs and success with a mix of bespoke packaged sensor products, or simple OEM sensor options for customer integration.

Conductivity, Temperature and Depth (CTD) and Speed of Sound, Temperature and Depth (SVP) are common requirements and necessary for complementary or corrective data to other parameters being measured.

More specific parameters such as Chlorophyll, Rhodamine, Fluorescein, Turbidity and Crude Oil in water are also coming on line as both independent and packaged products. 


To find out more about how Valeport addresses these challenges, please see our case study that was published recently Sensor Suites and Our Engineering Challenges.

If you require any more information or if have your own project that you would like us to assist with, then please just get in touch with our team here at Valeport and we will get straight back to you.
