MARVEL-SCAN, Tthe most compact AUV with side-scan sonar and acoustic positioning

Seaber’s MARVEL is the new generation of AUV meant for defense applications deployed and recovered with confidence. The MARVEL range is used more for defense-oriented sectors such as security, coast guard, MCM missions and ASW training.


The MARVEL-SCAN is equipped with a 200kHz or 680kHz Side Scan Sonar from DeepVision which provides great quality images with high stability, accurate navigation, and capable of managing coastal areas with waves and current. The MARVEL-SCAN is equipped with an underwater acoustic positioning and communication module. With an autonomy of up to 8 hours, and speed of up to 6knots, and a depth rated at 300m. With the INX navigation, DVL, and acoustic positioning, the MARVEL-SCAN is able to have a navigation accuracy equal to <5m absolute positioning within the USBL surface module range.
