The Jet Ski Unmanned Surface Vehicle is a modified jet ski water craft, whose small size and versatility makes it ideal for coastal surveillance, complex water rescue, transport and other maritime missions. The geographically tracked USV features a remote controlled configuration to mitigate personnel exposure to a variety of risks.
Operated wirelessly from a safe distance using a remote control deigned with an intuitive human-machine interface, the USV delivers efficient vehicle operation. It can also be equipped with a remote controlled weapon system for missions involving armed engagements.
The Jet Ski USV has a communication range of about 12km, a maximum speed of 40 mph while unmanned and can be operational for 8hours being remotely controlled.
