Chelsea Technologies Group’s NuShuttle is a proven, low cost and robust towed undulating vehicle in use on ships of opportunity and research vessels. NuShuttle can be fitted with a wide variety of sensors to provide data on such parameters as conductivity, temperature, depth, chlorophyll, hydrocarbon and Gelbstoff fluorescence, turbidity, optical transmittance, bioluminescence, nutrient, redox and dissolved oxygen.
It also has capacity to carry a mechanical Plankton Sampler or an Optical Plankton Counter. NuShuttle can be towed at speeds of 5 to 15 knots to operational depths of >150m. It can be launched and recovered while the vessel is underway, by a non-scientific crew with minimal training.
