Underwater Unmanned Vehicles (UUV)Typically torpedo-shaped vessels, UUVs are equipped with a variety of sensors suitable for surveillance and oceanographic monitoring. UUVs have a pre-programmed search pattern and cannot be operated remotely. Very useful for collecting data on vessels suspected of illegal activity, UUVs are expensive platforms and run the risk of becoming entangled in natural habitats, fishing gear, or industrial complexes like oil rigs. Gliders are a type of UUVs that are distinct in that they do not rely on a propeller for propulsion but rather on buoyancy variation. They often have more endurance than most UUVs, but operators have less precision of movement or control in high currents.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)UAVs can either fly autonomously according to a pre-programmed mission or are remote controlled from a ground station. Mostly applied to military and special operations, UAVs are increasingly utilized for civil applications like surveillance and aerial imagery. UAVs are suitable for both cooperative and non-cooperative vessel detection in real-time.
