We focus on flexibility.
Some users want the option of using their survey boat in an unmanned mode, while still having the option of manned use. Other users see a potential in using Unmanned Surface Vehicles, but are not yet ready to take the cost of investing in a custom USV platform. For those users the Maritime Robotics USV Conversion System offers a unique opportunity to take advantage of the possibilities for unmanned surface operations.
The USV Conversion System includes the same Vehicle Control Station, Communication and On-Board Systems as the more integrated MARINER USV system, but can also be highly customized for your special need and requirements.
Patrol boats of any kind can now be converted to unmanned operation and equipped with custom payload and sensor solutions. For bathymetric survey we often see that many users have invested in smaller, specially equipped manned survey boats. These users can now transform their boats into unmanned operations and thus achieving the HSE and cost-saving features of unmanned operation.
