Option 6_1EUN - Photo-min.png

Long endurance 40-60 days at 4 knts, with reduced maintenance requirements, meaning increased operational time on site.

H-USVs provide continuous perimeter monitoring with ability to intercept any incoming vessels.

We utilise the latest in AI and computer vision technology to detect threats and anomalies such as objects in the water, oil spills and incursions.

Example use case

 

Deploying 5 AO Guard vessels as a swarm to provide a visual perimeter, and to collect environmental data from around a North Sea Wind Farm.

 

This AO Guard swarm can identify both intentional and accidental incursions into restricted areas – including vessels that are too small for radar, and those operating without AIS. The AO Guard sends an alert and deploys vessels to the most optimal positions for tracking and intercepting, whilst the rest of the fleet reforms a perimeter to detect further incursions.

 

The lead AO Guard vessel sails to intercept the target whilst trying to establish comms via VHF. At a range of 1-2nm, the AO Guard uses its communications system to warn the vessel that it is entering a restricted area.

Our H-USVs can deploy a wind LiDAR, water and air quality monitors and other environmental and situational sensors for data collection on site; all the while conducting site monitoring and security monitoring duties.
