AutoNaut To Display Innovative Uncrewed Surface Vehicle (USV) at DSEI 2023
AutoNaut, a pioneer in maritime technology, will showcase the remarkable potential and versatility of its USV, highlighting its crucial role in advancing defence and security operations. The cutting-edge capabilities of AutoNaut's Uncrewed Surface Vehicle (USV) will be displayed at the Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) exhibition from September 11 to 15, 2023, at ExCeL London.
Set to be displayed at a Society of Maritime Industries’ (SMI) shared stand in the Naval Zone, the autonomous surface vessel is equipped with a host of Unique Selling Points (USPs) that set it apart in the maritime domain, these including:
Adaptive Design: The AutoNaut USV boasts a unique wave-propulsion system that enables efficient energy harvesting from the environment, ensuring extended deployment periods and reducing the need for frequent maintenance.
Versatile Payload Capability: With its modular payload design, the AutoNaut USV accommodates an array of sensors, communication systems, and other mission-specific equipment. This flexibility empowers it to undertake a wide range of tasks.
Autonomous Intelligence: Built with advanced autonomous capabilities, the AutoNaut USV can navigate and operate independently, making it an invaluable asset for data collection, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions in challenging maritime environments.
Maritime ISTAR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition, and Reconnaissance): Leveraging its autonomous navigation and sensor capabilities, the AutoNaut USV enhances maritime surveillance efforts, ensuring comprehensive coverage and timely threat detection. This includes operating in the ASW (Anti-Submarine Warfare) domain through the use of towed and vertically deployed passive hydrophone arrays.
Environmental Monitoring: Equipped with environmental sensors, the USV contributes to the monitoring of marine ecosystems above and below the water, helping safeguard natural resources and contributing to environmental conservation.
Communication Relay: The AutoNaut USV serves as a reliable communication relay in remote or challenging maritime areas, ensuring seamless data transfer and enabling effective command and control operations.
MCM (Mine Countermeasures): Its adaptability and endurance make the USV an ideal candidate for mine countermeasure operations, minimizing risks to human personnel in hazardous zones.
AutoNaut will be among eight exhibitors in an area arranged and overseen by SMI, ensuring that there is a focal point to visit for those wishing to engage with innovative companies working in the maritime sector.
Harry Spedding, AutoNaut’s General Manager, hopes that the United Naval Zone at DSEI will provide a platform for AutoNaut to engage with industry leaders, exchange ideas, and showcase its USV's capabilities to a focused audience of defence and security professionals, government representatives, and potential partners.
For AutoNaut, the benefits are apparent, in Harry’s own words:
“This dedicated zone fosters collaboration and synergy among key players in the naval and maritime sectors, AutoNaut is excited to be a part of this dynamic event and looks forward to demonstrating how its Uncrewed Surface Vehicle can contribute to advancing defence and security objectives.”
