Aquabotix has launched three new unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) for defence and commercial applications including covert operations and protection of ships in port.

SwarmDiver Stealth is designed to covertly collect intelligence and transfer data in littoral environments where the waters are continuously monitored by acoustic sensors, electromagnetic spectrum monitoring, and visual detection.

The Stealth model features an exterior coating over a specialty graphic camouflage paint, a low-noise motor, and no visible status lights to enable the USV to reduce the risk of detection, Aquabotix said.

Beyond collecting intelligence, the Stealth can be used to securely transfer data between two points without the risk of interception posed by wireless transfer methods.
