ASV has appointed Fastwave as Australian channel partner to develop opportunities and system capabilities for their unmanned maritime systems.
Their unique and field proven unmanned vessels are making a disruptive, revolutionary change to working at sea by reducing costs, improving operational flexibility, reducing risks and providing more real-time data.
The C-Worker 6 is a multi-role work class ASV suitable for a variety of offshore and coastal tasks. The vehicle can be used to complete tasks such as subsea positioning, surveying and environmental monitoring without the need of a ship on station or sea-bed anchoring. C-Worker 6 can integrate a variety of payloads including multi-beam, USBL, CTD and ADCP via exchangeable payload frames. The ability to integrate multiple offshore payloads is unique to C-Worker 6.
Aside from commercial roles, C-Worker 6 can be used in a military setting for applications such as security and surveillance. Above water payloads such as camera suites can be fitted to the mast. C-Worker 6 can be launched offshore from a mothership or by a shore side crane.
The robust design incorporating an aluminium, self-righting hull makes the vehicle suitable for harsh ocean environments. C-Worker 6 has a 30 day endurance at an average speed of 4 knots and houses fully redundant power propulsion and communication systems.
The vehicle utilises an integrated navigation sensor suite comprised of colour and light cameras, an infra-red pan tilt camera and an x-band marine radar.
Custom payloads can be developed by ASV or by customers who are supplied an empty payload frame and a software interface specification.
C-Enduro is a long endurance autonomous surface vehicle used to safely and cost effectively collect data at sea.
Built to operate in all marine environments, C-Enduro uses energy harvesting technology combined with an efficient self-righting hull. C-Enduro’s unprecedented payload capacity and power enables the use of a combination of payloads during any one mission.
Below water sensors such as ADCP, MBES and CTD can be mounted below the deck, on the keel and/or winch with the mast used to house weather sensors and cameras suites.
The ability to house a multitude of payloads makes C-Enduro a suitable option for metocean and oceanographic data collection and survey as well as security and situational awareness and anti-submarine warfare.
Use of the C-Enduro can dramatically reduce the cost of data collection by removing the need for traditional survey vessels. Use of mission planning and waypoint setting can often result in a more accurate dataset.
