US-based SeaRobotics has launched a new series of utility class autonomous surface vehicle (ASV).
The unmanned vessel may be fitted with interchangeable payloads and sensors such as single- and multi-beam echosounders, LIDAR, sidescan sonar, and sub-bottom profilers.
The ASV may be used for a variety of missions including coastal survey, disaster response, and research.
