As uncrewed vehicles continue to gain capabilities, they are increasingly being used for applications that might previously have been accomplished with manned vehicles or buoy networks. One of the leaders in pushing forward these new applications is MARTAC, an innovative provider of Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs). Among the many capabilities available on their MANTAS USV platform is wave measurement powered by SeaView’s industry leading SVS-603 sensor, which has been developed to enable use on a wide range of buoy and vehicle platforms. The SVS-603 wave sensor installed on the MANTAS USV provides wave data in a joint project between the US Navy and NOAA. The MANTAS USV is able to operate in sea state five conditions (~ 8ft to 13ft waves).
