The Iver3-580 EP incorporates all of the standard Iver3 features along with options for added forward payload sections and an intuitive API for remote helm applications .  This autonomous system benefits from 14 years of experience in building reliable systems with well over 250 AUVs shipped. The EP model is an open system, where the users can install their hardware and make software extensions to the vehicle without a custom design. L3 OceanServer provides physical space inside the forward section for user electronics as well as hull penetrators to make connections to external sensors. The remote helm design model includes a separate CPU, which allows the users to install their own operating system that can connect to the added hardware. The second CPU communicates with the Iver3 control CPU through a serial port via a rich set of commands for remote helm control. The user applications are wide ranging including remote helm use with MOOS-IvP (Mission Oriented Operating Suite – Interval Programming) software.
