ASV C-Worker USV

ASV’s C-Worker USV took to the water in Lake Conroe for its first International showcase following three highly successful demonstrations in the UK. Personnel from over 40 major oil and gas companies gathered in Houston TX to attend the two day demonstration of the revolutionary unmanned surface vehicle.

The demonstration consisted of C-Worker fitted with a Sonardyne Gyro USBL acoustic positioning system, successfully executing seabed positioning and Compatt calibration as well as station keeping and following survey lines.

Since its official launch in February, C-Worker has sparked huge amounts of International interest. The vehicle’s unique capability to autonomously conduct subsea positioning, surveying and monitoring has opened up new possibilities and ways of carrying out oil and gas operations at sea.

Unmanned Surface Vehicle USVC-Worker leverages technology from over 50 highly successful unmanned vehicles that ASV has built to date. Additional technological advancements introduced in the C-Worker include the integration of a variety of offshore payload combinations including USBL, ADCP (current meter), CTD, Multibeam Sonar, Acoustic Telemetry, and Passive Acoustic Sonar (PAM) for marine mammal detection.

The vehicles will be operated and leased by ASV with options for bare-boat and full service solutions.
