Control  Technology signed contract  with   National  Institute  of  Oceanography (NIO), Goa  to industrialize the patented product  Autonomous Vertical Profiler developed by  NIO. With  this we have  entered one  more niche area where very few companies working in India. Control Technology also involved in development of Under Water Remotely  Operated  Subsea  Vehicle which  can   be   used   in   various applications.


Autonomous Vertical Profiler

AVP is propelled robot vehicle that traverse the water column vertically sensing and storing water column properties. The AVP can be programmed to descend at variable speeds to a given depth set by the user. Being positively buyont for safety purposes, it ascends relatively slowly to the sea surface with out power. After it breaks surface, the AVP transmits its GPS co-ordinates and the acquired data via RF or through a satellite modem.
