Seafloor Systems, Inc. provides a full spectrum of hydrographic survey equipment, software, personnel, training and support—specializing in the geophysical sector—for survey companies worldwide. The company develops and manufactures the HydroLite portable hydrographic survey system, HyDrone-RCV, and EchoBoat remote-controlled survey platforms for remote hydrographic survey applications. Seafloor Systems was formed in 1999 by veteran U.S. Navy Hydrographer John Tamplin, and has built the largest rental pool of multibeam echosounder equipment in the U.S. Seafloor Systems provides custom hydrographic survey solutions, integrating multibeam echosounder systems and state-of-the art position and orientation systems into a complete, turnkey product. Recent integrated solutions are: the EchoBoat, a remotely controlled multi-purpose vehicle capable of carrying multiple sensors including a multibeam echosounder, side scan sonar, ADCP, singlebeam echosounder, and sound velocimeter. The HyDrone-RCV, a hand-portable, remote control survey boat platform works in conjunction with the HydroLite-TM portable echosounder kit to conduct bathymetric surveys in ponds, lakes, rivers, and streams. The HyDrone has been built with a wide profile to avoid tipping, and watertight construction.
