Innovative Unmanned Surface Vessels

Meet Autonomous Surveyor

New next-generation high-speed Autonomous Survey Vessel for subsea  hydroacoustic data acquisition, with low environmental impact

Three offshore wind turbines and their blades

Next generation performance

Fast, flexible multibeam survey platform easily 

launched from a mothership or from shore, ready to leverage the power of new multibeam systems with three times the survey speed

Health, Safety & Environment (HSE)

Extend weather windows and get more data while reducing risk as fewer personnel are needed at sea. Easy Launch & Rescue with practically any size crane also keeps people safe 

Reduced carbon footprint

Fully electric propulsion with swappable batteries delivers unmatched performance and agility while reducing the CO2 footprint of marine data acquisition

New multibeam survey workflows

Unlock new cost and time-saving operations like ‘autonomous swarm survey’ with multiple interconnected platforms managed from a crewed or uncrewed mothership

Transforming the energy transition

Our fast and agile Autonomous Surface Vehicle is used for commercial multibeam bathymetric surveying and maritime security duties at offshore wind farms and other diverse maritime domains
