SEA-KIT Omega-Class USV

Extended endurance USV for unmanned maritime operations

The SEA-KIT Omega Uncrewed Surface Vessel (USV) is designed for extended endurance, fully uncrewed maritime and logistics operations, with a large payload capacity and capability to launch, recover and control subsea vehicles. Equipped with a swarm of AUVs, the Omega can survey large ocean areas, with its endurance and robustness enabling missions many miles from port or mother ship.

Description

With a large payload capacity and the capability to autonomously launch, recover and control subsea vehicles, including ROVs and AUV/UUVs, SEA-KIT Omega meets the demands of current and future offshore operations above and below the water and increases the range and capabilities of maritime and border security systems.

Reduced crewing, with personnel controlling the USV in a safer, onshore environment, significantly reduces risk and costs. The vessel’s hybrid propulsion system delivers over-the-horizon endurance with minimal acoustic signature and a reduced CO2 footprint.

The Omega can be configured for uncrewed cargo transport with station holding and logistics options. Freight can be transported in SEA-KIT’s safe, enclosed and interchangeable podded payload area, with a fluid capacity of up to 30m3. Larger items can be transported in the open topped cargo bay. SEA-KIT Omega can transit to the point of hold station and remain in position as cargo is being loaded or unloaded.

The SEA-KIT Omega is controlled by SEA-KIT’s proprietary G-SAVI control and surveillance platform, which provides safe and secure operation from remote control centres.
