Global Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USV) Report

The Global Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USV) report offers a detailed analysis of USV’s being developed or used by industry and navies, and created a data set to track findings, listing up to 34 key parameters for 124 USV platforms.

The demand for USVs are also increasing dramatically. In marine environments, USVs are increasingly deployed to the missions that require a long patrol time in dangerous areas. It is advantageous to operate vessels without humans on board, as they can be manufactured at a considerably lower cost. Because of these inherent benefits of unmanned systems, there has been a steadily growing interest around the world.

Furthermore, Many of the countries across the world have started spending heavily in the USV's development. Navies in countries like US, Singapore, Israel, UK, China and Russia are the top spenders in the USV's including recent procurements.

In particular, the report provides an in-depth analysis of the following –

– USV's Trends: detailed analysis on USVs based on their applications, payloads, modular design, length, weight, endurance, speed, control types and power source
