This is 7.9m White Ribon purchased by the British Geological Survey in 2009. The Cheetah was built to provide the BGS with a specialised road towable hydrographic survey catamaran designed to collect data in the nearshore zone where traditionally data collection has been difficult. The clip features Cheetah's unique hydropod design which houses various sonar heads and survey installtions.
