Maritime Security

Surface and subsea technologies for maritime domain awareness and protection for maritime assets 

Mitigate security risks and threats to commercial offshore and maritime assets with dynamic autonomous solutions on and under the surface

Enhance maritime domain awareness

Unmanned Surface Vessels (USV) are game-changers for energy asset security in the commercial marine realm. They can be deployed to augment situational awareness across the maritime domain and with lower costs than deploying crewed vessels to perform the same, potentially dangerous function.

The Force Multiplier

Unmanned Surface Vessels

Subsea Europe Services is the European partner of MARTAC Systems, the leading manufacturer of USVs for maritime security applications including the field-proven MANTAS and Devil Ray platforms.

Lower risk - fewer trained personnel can oversee more assets active in the field more effectively than solely using crewed vessels for patrols

Improve situational awareness - Autonomous monitoring and analysis of real-time data, as well as continuous assessment of the maritime domain

Double duties - Resident USVs can be deployed for security and marine survey duties whenever subsea data is required

Situational Awareness

With diverse sensors and high mission endurance in any environment, MARTAC USVs can monitor assets 24/7 providing real-time feedback to a command centre with lower operational risk and cost. Read more 

Mine Countermeasures

Our MARTAC Mantas T12 platform and a MARTAC Devil Ray 24 took part in the Baltops 2023 naval exercise in the summer of 2023, showing their ability to integrate seamlessly into mine countermeasure workflows. Read more

Swarm Operations

The use of multiple autonomous platforms improves security over a wide area while requiring fewer operators. This swarm approach can also be multi-modal, with surface platforms communicating with subsea vehicles. Read more

The platforms


Mantas is a small, high-speed and incredibly maneuverable autonomous platform with clean electric propulsion and diverse payloads. Available as T12 (3 metres) or T8 (2 metres), MANTAS USVs are capable and cost-effective, especially for swarm operations involving multiple vehicles. Enquire

MARTAC Devil Ray

Available as T24 (7 metres), T38 (11 metres) and T50 (15 metres) Devil Ray USVs are a highly capable threat monitoring, deterrent and intervention platform. Open architecture means they can be built for any application and payload, including the ability to dock with smaller USVs. Enquire

Improve underwater awareness

Underwater pipelines, cables, monopiles, and other critical infrastructure have become a target in recent years. Fortunately, it's possible to de-risk and reduce the cost of protecting your assets below the surface when using our advanced autonomous solutions and state-of-the-art sensors.
