Marine Advanced Robotics WAM-V 20 ASV

Multi-day endurance and industry leading stability in a portable package

The WAM-V 20 is the ideal ASV (Autonomous Surface Vessel) for marine data collection: as a primary instrument or as a force multiplier for existing vessels. Articulating suspension and compliant hulls isolate and reduce payload movement to create an exceptionally stable platform and increase data acquisition quality. Small footprint, light vessel weight and shallow draft extend the operating range from the open ocean to the most sensitive shoaling environments.

Description

The WAM-V 20 is the ideal ASV (Autonomous Surface Vessel) for marine data collection: as a primary instrument or as a force multiplier for existing vessels. Articulating suspension and compliant hulls isolate and reduce payload movement to create an exceptionally stable platform and increase data acquisition quality. Small footprint, light vessel weight and shallow draft extend the operating range from the open ocean to the most sensitive shoaling environments. The WAM-V 20 is quickly assembled and deployed by two persons. Launch and recover from shore, a vessel deck, or by trailer.

 

WAM-V Advantage


Wave Adaptive: unique elements of the WAM-V design allow the hulls to move with the waves while the center platform remains stable. The inflatable hulls act like automobile tires to absorb vibrations caused by high frequency waves. The articulation and suspension systems dissipate the medium to low frequency wave energy.


Modular: payloads and instrument packages are quickly switched, allowing mission-specific customization in minutes. Modular engine pods with different propulsion systems can be swapped to accommodate mission or maintenance requirements.


Helicopter-like Functionality: a WAM-V can pick up and deliver payloads from its center structure in open-ocean or in very shallow water. No need for an over-the-side crane or A-frame.


Stable & Maneuverable: the 2:1 length to beam ratio along with articulation and suspensions systems make the WAM-V an exceptionally stable and seaworthy platform. Widely spaced engine pods enable a high degree of maneuverability, allowing the vessel to turn 360° within its own length.


Reduced Footprint: WAM-Vs can be disassembled into components and packed for shipment. Alternatively, they can be designed to hydraulically, electrically or manually fold and reduce their footprint by up to 75%. This means the WAM-V has exceptionally low deployment or relocation costs.


Scalable: WAM-Vs can be built in different lengths to match specific applications and customer’s needs
