The JARI-USV-A "ORCA" is an advanced unmanned surface vessel with a total length of 58 meters, beam width of 23 meters, beam depth of 4 meters, and displacement of 420 tons.

It is equipped with a diesel-electric dual-mode propulsion system that allows it to operate independently or in ship formation for medium and long-range operations.

The vessel is capable of autonomous awareness, which allows it to establish navigation and combat situations with information fusion and target identification. It can also autonomously plan tasks and intelligently control the platform and payload for task execution according to operational requirements.

In terms of weapons capabilities, the JARI-USV-A is equipped with a range of weapons systems, including machine guns, ship-to-ship missiles, rocket shells, and ship-to-air missiles, allowing it to attack surface, land, and air targets. It can also carry anti-submarine payloads and strike underwater targets with rocket-assisted torpedoes and tube-launched torpedoes.

Furthermore, the JARI-USV-A can support coordinated detection with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) that it carries onboard, and it can also support coordinated operation with other manned and unmanned platforms.

With a maximum speed of 42 knots and a carrying capacity of 70 tons, the JARI-USV-A is a high-speed, stealthy, and versatile unmanned surface vessel capable of performing a range of military operations, including over-the-horizon strike, air defense, anti-missile, and submarine search and attack.

Under good hydrologic conditions and when the sea state is no more than level 3, the JARI-USV-A "ORCA" is capable of striking submarine targets at a maximum range of more than 7 kilometers.

It is also equipped with an information processing capacity of more than 600 batches, allowing it to effectively process and analyze large amounts of data from various sensors and sources.

In terms of navigation control, the JARI-USV-A has a high level of accuracy, with a navigation control accuracy of less than 10 meters.
