UK Ship Register signs its first unmanned ASV

The UK Ship Register has signed its first unmanned vessel for the flag.

ASV Global’s C-Worker 7 autonomous surface vessel (ASV) will be used for work such as subsea positioning, surveying and environmental monitoring without the need of a ship on station or seabed anchoring.

The multi-role work class ASV can be used under direct control, semi-manned or completely unmanned for a variety of offshore and coastal tasks. 

The 7.2 metre-long C-Worker 7 can integrate a variety of payloads including multi-beam, USBL, CTD and ADCP via exchangeable payload frames.
