Autonomous Benthic Lander (ABL)

Benthic Lander

The Solo X Autonomous Benthic Lander (ABL) is a compact, water column and seabed observation platform. During deployment, the integral Solo X Subea Imaging System captures video or imagery, logs data and ultimately releases the sacrifial anchor returning the ABL to the surface.

The ABL is a highly adaptable platform and can be fitted with multiple Solo X imaging systems, lights, scaling lasers, CTDs and baited traps. Provisions are provided on the frame for mounting acoustic and radio/satellite beacons to aid in recovery.
