Dynautics SPECTRE marine autopilots and remote control systems have been developed and used for surface craft and sub-surface ROVs and AUVs or UUVs. They offer heading, speed, depth, height and attitude control, as well as dynamic positioning (hovering). Our core, self-tuning marine autopilot is licensed to major autopilot manufacturers for the leisure marine market.
SPECTRE can be remotely controlled using an RF joystick, UHF or GSM modems, or alternatively via Iridium satellites. SPECTRE has a broad range of applications and has been commissioned on a wide range of boats and underwater vehicles including AUVs and UUVs, ranging from <1m to >15m and from a few kilos to 25 tonnes, for both station keeping and very low speed manoeuvres right through to operation at over 50 knots.
SPECTRE marine autopilots are available in several formats that share the same firmware and algorithms but differ in physical size and the numbers of inputs and outputs.
