Norsafe informed that it has been working with Kongsberg to develop an Unmanned Surface Vessel (USV) to act as a combined autonomous and data collection platform with different sensors.
Ideal for military and commercial maritime use, the USV has been designed to be durable and flexible for fast equipment changeovers. The vessel is also stable on the water with minimal vibration and optimised for low air disturbance under the hull.
The USV has been designed for simple transportation either by road trailer or containerised on deck.
“We are delighted that Kongsberg approached us to take part in this joint initiative. Unmanned vessels are certainly useful in certain circumstances, especially in dangerous situations where the risk to human life is great” said Dag Songedal, CEO for Norsafe.
