Unmanned Surface Vessels (USV)

USVs operate on the surface of the water for extended periods of time, and are ideal for a diverse set of military and conservation applications including coastal surveillance, port security, hydrography and oceanography. USVs are capable of carrying a variety of payloads and sensors, depending on mission need, and are typically less expensive than AUVs or UAVs.


Saildrone, funded in part by Google Chairman Eric Schmidt, is an unmanned surface vessel that is powered by solar and wind energy.
