Unmanned system for maritime surveying

September 20th, 2013, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Unmanned systems offer expanding capabilities to provide maritime surveying and monitoring in a time where collecting larger amounts of data is becoming vital. In line with this, Autonomous Surface Vehicles (ASV) is developing a Long Endurance Marine Unmanned Surface Vehicle (LEMUSV) under the UK Government-backed Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI). Led by ASV, the team developing the LEMUSV includes Cosworth, which will be looking at generator systems, Hyperdrive which will investigate motor options and power management systems, and Cranfield University which will be considering collision avoidance technologies. ASV will undertake the detailed production design, build, commissioning and sea trials of a fully operational, open ocean going “C-Enduro” vessel. The robust vehicle design will utilise state of the art technologies from the consortium and be designed specifically to be capable of being deployed at sea for periods of up to three months in all weather conditions and sea states.
