HUON AQUACULTURE DOUBLES FALCON FLEET

Huon Aquaculture has boosted investment in underwater robotic technology by doubling their fleet of Saab Seaeye Falcons to four vehicles.


The two new Falcons will join the fleet to inspect nets, rigging and moorings at Huon’s aquaculture pens.

The pens are positioned in areas of strong current and rough water favoured for salmon farming as it mimics their natural habitat.

Designed for such strong currents and turbulent waters, the Falcon can remain steady under robust conditions whilst undertaking delicate or rugged tasks and manoeuvre with precision as needed.

The Falcon’s iCON behaviour-based intelligent control architecture offers precise positioning and active station-keeping to let the operator concentrate on the task in hand thereby reducing their workload.

Falcon is at the leading edge of Huon’s developments in advancing the use of technology in aquaculture.

The Falcon’s iCON behaviour-based intelligent control architecture offers precise positioning and active station-keeping to let the operator concentrate on the task in hand thereby reducing their workload.

The vehicle’s intelligent control system allows for a wide range of equipment to be easily added and changed for many different tasks.

By adopting the Falcon concept, Huon has chosen the most popular vehicle of its class in the world. Its global success comes from having packed five powerful thrusters and an intelligent distributed control system into a compact 1 x 0.5 x 0.6 metre versatile system that can operate at 300m and 1000m and has been proven worldwide since 2002.
