AUV Anchoring System

Unique One-Of-A-Kind Solutions

This custom anchoring system was designed for a private company for use with their Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV).

Catania designed, tested and integrated this one-of-a-kind system to be a reliable open-ocean anchoring system that will safely hold the AUV in place during foul weather, be seen by radar and be visible at night.

Catania also provided a custom Barrel Winch subsystem for deploying and retrieving the chain.


Customized COTS Anchor System

Catania chose components that were primarily commercial-off-the-shelf to reduce cost to the customer and not "reinvent the wheel" for parts that are readily available. Catania fabricated the minimal amount of components which provided interfaces between the COTS components.
