SKUi3XO


The next generation of autonomous water quality vehicles.  The i3XO EcoMapper generates high-resolution maps of water quality, water currents, bathymetry, and sonar imagery.

  • Overview

    YSI Integrated Systems & Services partnered with Ocean Server Technology to combine the Iver3 Autonomous Underwater Vehicle and the YSI EXO water quality system to create the i3XO AUV. The i3XO is the combination of the latest in water quality and AUV’s combined into one robust monitoring platform.  

    The i3XO AUV will provide high resolution water quality data, side scan sonar imaging, downward looking current profiling, and bathymetric surveying.  Used by government agencies, military, universities, contractors, and private organizations, the versatility of the i3XO is perfect for all your monitoring requirements.
