YSI Integrated Systems & Services partnered with Ocean Server Technology to combine the Iver3 Autonomous Underwater Vehicle and the YSI EXO water quality system to create the i3XO AUV. The i3XO is the combination of the latest in water quality and AUV’s combined into one robust monitoring platform.
The i3XO AUV will provide high resolution water quality data, side scan sonar imaging, downward looking current profiling, and bathymetric surveying.  Used by government agencies, military, universities, contractors, and private organizations, the versatility of the i3XO is perfect for all your monitoring requirements.
A unique AUV designed specifically for mapping water quality, water currents, and bathymetry. Navigate challenging natural environments with a monitoring platform that will generate the highest-resolution data at a low cost and low risk to your personnel. YSI introduces a unique system for collecting water quality data.
The i3XO EcoMapper™ AUV (Autonomous Underwater Vehicle) with EXO sensors provides researchers and scientists with a data collection platform unmatched in its flexibility and capability. This vehicle can measure water quality, currents, and bathymetry at a continuous interval for missions ranging from 8-12 hours long.
