L3 Technologies selects Arctic Rays’ lights for their Iver UUV

May 20, 2019 – Groton, Massachusetts – Arctic Rays LLC, an underwater technology specialist in the design and manufacturing of high-performance lights, cameras, and sub-sea equipment, has delivered custom-manufactured LED strobe lights to L3 Technologies.

Named “Remora”, the high-intensity strobe lights are fitted into the L3 Technologies Iver unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) platform. The light is electrically synchronized with the onboard camera to capture crisp images even in low-light environments. This imagery is used for habitat mapping, pipeline, structure survey and photogrammetry missions. The camera and strobe system, when paired with the standard side scan sonar, bathymetry, and water quality measurements of the Iver, offers operators an additional view into the underwater environment.

Arctic Rays worked with L3 Technologies to custom design the low-profile Remora strobe to fit into existing free space, while also being conscious of the low power requirements for UUVs. For more information, please visit www.articrays.com.
