The AutoPilot enables the Bathycat ASV unmanned RC Survey boat to complete a survey area autonomously. It uses the same Mission Planner software popular in drone navigation to layout the survey lines and monitor progress. Typically you would use the google satellite imagery in Mission Planner and find your survey area. Next you draw a polygon around the area and with the simple grid feature you can lay the survey lines in the direction needed and choose the distance apart for each line. Once you are happy with this layout, you can save the waypoint File to use later. The AutoPilot kit includes everything to turn the BathyCat into a fully autonomous survey vessel in minutes. This enables the user to complete a single beam echo sounder survey and repeat it when needed.
