Canada's Ocean Supercluster announced today support for a new autonmous vehicle project XO-G2. The XO-G2 will house OFG’s RM Hypermag, a scalable magnetic vector gradiometer that leverages our expertise in marine magnetics for autonomous vehicles. RM Hypermag is an evolution of OFG’s Self-Compensating Magnetometer (SCM) system for autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV), USVs, and ROVs. Improved depth of burial and tracking for cables and pipelines, UXO detection and characterization will all benefit from its high sensitivity, noise rejection, and “strap-down” configuration allowing for tight integration into autonomous systems.
