Maritime Robotics and Teledyne Marine have delivered Uncrewed Surface Vessels (USVs) to the Ukrainian Navy for advanced sensor data collection.

Maritime Robotics’ Otter USV, equipped with the Teledyne RESON SeaBAT T51-R multibeam echosounder from Teledyne Marine, is now in use by the Ukrainian Navy. 

The USV enables critical data collection, without endangering human lives, as the sensors are carried by an unmanned vehicle.

This allows for comprehensive and accurate information about specific marine areas. Data and information collected by the unmanned systems are used to strengthen Ukraine’s defense, enhance maritime traffic security, and support the safety of the civilian population in the areas.

The Otter USV by Maritime Robotics is a crucial part of a carefully developed portfolio of autonomous technologies capable of supporting military personnel in mapping and securing marine environments. 

Controlled and navigated remotely, Maritime Robotics’ USVs can identify, locate, and safely neutralize potential threats such as explosive devices and sea mines, thereby reducing human risk and securing both military and civilian lives.

Eirik Hovstein, Vice President of Defence & Security at Maritime Robotics, said; ”We are proud to offer solutions that improve the safety of civilians in Ukraine while supporting the Ukrainian Navy. 

“Our technologies and solutions delivered to the Navy are specifically designed to contribute to and strengthen defense and save lives. Maritime Robotics acknowledges Ukraine’s concerns for the safety of its people and communities and is determined to support their efforts in creating a safe environment.”
