Ocean Specialists, Inc. (OSI) has launched USVs (unmanned surface vehicles) as a service, a new line of business that is expected to further strengthen the company’s systems integration and marine project management services for complex offshore activities.
The USV-as-a-Service business line will provide ocean and offshore operators with direct access to a portfolio of easy-to-carry, multi-mission USVs ranging from 1.8 meters to 11 meters in length, OSI said.
The Florida-based company said its suite of USV services, from simple charter to more comprehensive turnkey packages, come with technical support for payload integration, field deployment assistance and operational training.
“USVs will prove increasingly instrumental to future offshore operations across a range of industries over the coming years,” said the director general of the OSI Perry Wright.
“OSI has invested in several versatile units, each optimized for a range of marine applications, whether a high-endurance USV to facilitate marine survey of critical infrastructure or a more compact unit Designed for search and rescue operations in hazardous areas or difficult-to-navigate waters, we are equipped to advise customers on the most appropriate payload model and specifications to best meet their needs.
