Building a two-hull AUV: Which components?

Good day,

I would like to build an AUV consisting of two hulls. The two hulls should be 1 meter apart. I intend on using a T200 thruster on each hull. For testing purposes, I would like to tether the AUV and later on make it autonomous. Would the ARDUSUP be useful for this application?

The reason for two hulls is that I want to track low frequency sounds (1KHz). Thus, the element spacing of the Direction of Arrival array is 1 meter…

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated,
Jaco

Hi Jaco,

Yes, Ardusub can do the job for you, probably a firmware change is necessary for your specific frame, check Making a Custom Configuration.
