Continuing to enable the use of emerging breakthrough technology, TotalEnergies has partnered with iXbIue to demonstrate collaborative uncrewed capabilities for subsea inspection and asset survey operations.
Successful trials were recently conducted off the coast of La Ciotat (South of France), deploying two uncrewed platforms: iXbIue DriX Uncrewed Surface Vehicle (USV) and
Teledyne Cavia Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV). Both uncrewed platforms were remotely controlled and supervised from iXbIue Onshore Control Center, with iXbIue DriX CJSV acting as a communication gateway between the onshore control center and the Cavia AUV. The two drones were able to successfully communicate together, thanks to the Caps USBL positioning system installed within the DriX gondola, and that tracked the Cavia AUV.
