LEUS (Long Endurance USV Solution) is our first prototype and demonstrator. The platform is named “Kaluga”. The system includes a single communication link and on-board electronics & software to interface with engine and rudder control, a camera, a voice module and a smoke canister dispenser. A portable ground station was also developed to provide full control over the boat
ECUVE (Environmental Control with Unmanned Vessels) is our first commercial unit. Final user is PLOCAN (Oceanic Platform of Canary Islands). The system includes two communications link: one in S-band for boat control & telemetries and one C-band for payloads control & telemetries with automatic switch between them in case of loss of communications. Four cameras was integrated to provide 360º vision. A weather station sends information about air conditions and two sensors measure some water parameters (temp, oxygen and conductivity).
USEFUL (Unmanned System for Fast Underwater Lines inspection): Development of an 11 meters USV with an integrated mini ROV (Remoted Operated Vehicle) for inspection of underwater facilites (electrical lines, pipelines…) The whole operation can be performed from a remote control station with no need of human intervention during ROV/UUV launch and recovery operations.
FIUS (Fast Intervention Unmanned System): it is a small and stealth USV (RHIB 2.80 meteres) for military applications related to ISR operations. It is equipped with EO/IR gyrostabilized cameras and ECM devices to interfere communications.
SIMBAAD (INTEGRAL SYSTEM FOR MONITORING AND SEARCHING FOR AQUATIC THREATS FOR DEFENSE), an integrated system for military operations focused primarily on the detection, location and identification of underwater threats. EUROSTARS project, focused on the development and conceptual and construction design of an unmanned semi-rigid vessel for use in surveillance, rescue and firefighting operations. MARTERA Project: Project based on the use of collaborative unmanned vessels for the detection of spills and the laying of anti-pollution barriers and assistance for the detection of marine environmental disasters and anti-pollution services.
