BATTERY ARRAY - ISO REAR_edited.png

The 105Ah battery consists of 5 individual battery packs at 21Ah each. The 5 discrete packs add safety and redundancy to the system. The addition of battery modules increases power longevity and mission duration. The modular design also allows for future upgrading of the power source when new technology becomes available.

The Hammerhead control module contains a power accessory port. This connection provides up to 1000 watts of power for accessories such as heated wetsuits, lights, cameras and other equipment.

AUTONOMOUS NAVIGATION

The Hammerhead uses The Navigator Delta 2 from Shark Marine Technologies. This powerful navigation system provides:

Full/Semi-autonomous control

Mapping capabilities

Ascend/descend rate limits for safety 

Station keeping

Course and heading information

Doppler navigation to track dead reckoning

Teledyne Blueview sonar for accurate object detection

Pole GPS for positioning

Combined with proprietary software, the Hammerhead SMV can use either the Navigator Delta 2, Tablet 2 or E-Tach from Shark Marine Technologies, for its navigation. The modular design of the navigation system provides the ability to detach from the Hammerhead so you can use the navigator separately or protect sensitive information. Manual controls work independently from the navigation system when manual operation is required.

THRUST & CONTROL

The Hammerhead is controlled by 4 powerful thrusters, each capable of 100 lbs of thrust. 2 rotating thrusters located at the bow and 2 fixed position thrusters located at the stern.

Each thruster contains a heavy-duty brushless motor protected by an impact resistant aluminum housing. Thrust is achieved by a hermetically sealed magnetically coupled drive and a durable, glass-filled nylon propeller. 

STORAGE & TRANSPORT

When the Hammerhead is not in use, the bow dome folds back, allowing the 2 front thrusters to fold in on itself. In the stowed position, the Hammerhead can be maneuvered through spaces and doorways.
