Echostream

Echostream provides cutting-edge robotics technology for safely collecting high-quality stormwater management pond water and sediment survey data. The fully loaded, battery-operated Kingfisher Unmanned Surface Vessel is easy-to-use, robust, and ideal for environment and water resource professionals. With semi and fully autonomous capabilities, high-quality data is collected faster, cheaper and safer than conventional methods, making it a favourite among survey technicians because it allows them to remain safe onshore. The folding catamaran design includes electric jet propulsion thrusters within each semi-planing hull, providing high maneuverability and an extremely shallow drought of only 15cm. Most notably, the system collects 100 times more data than traditional shallow water survey methods and can be transported and utilized by one individual, cutting costs by as much as 60%.
