Supported Sensors

A versatile platform with a wide range of sensing capabilities

High Level

The SP-48 has been designed to support a wide variety of applications and sensors. It can support a total payload of up to 70 kg (150 lbs), drawing up to roughly 500 W for day-long missions, or roughly 25 to 85 W for 24x7 operation (depending on desired cruise speed and available sun energy).

Built-In Sensors

The base package includes the following built-in sensors:

Wind speed / direction, air temperature, air pressure
Water temperature
Surface water current (speed and direction)
Boat speed through water
Boat heading
GPS location, speed and direction over ground
Internal systems (motors, batteries, etc)
