Last November 10th, UTEK made available to the Valenciaport Foundation, and in collaboration with the company ATEINCO, its unmanned vessel to perform underwater threat detection tests.
UTEK tooks part in the fifth edition of National R&D Congress in Defense and Security
Last November 22nd the Third Iberian Robotics Conference was hold in Sevilla with the objective of showing the robotic research and development of new applications. UTEK took part with the paper “High reliability unmanned vessels”
On the last 20th, the digital spanish version of Expansion newspaper published, on the cover of its supplement NAUTA 360, a publication about UTEK company and the development of its unmanned surface boat in collaboration with NARWHAL and TOURON.
The SV01P completes its first 50 navigation hours with a fail rate equal to 0%.
European Project leaded by UTEK and developed in collaboration with Narwhal and the Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA). The objective is the development of a specific solution for port security based in the use of USV’s.
European Project leaded by UTEK and developed in collaboration with Narwhal, the Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA) and the Norwegian company All Maritim. The objective is the development of a system to allow a quick operation in oil spill events decreasing the impact in the area.
First general purpose unmanned vessel developed by UTEK. It is used as test platform and technological prototype. It is based in a 6,70 meters Narwhal RHIB with a 150 HP Mercury Verado engine. The vessel is controlled from a remote station with a radio link allowing the interchange of telemetries and telecommands for the control.
The prototype named SV01P (Surface Vehicle 01 Prototype), can reach a top speed of more than 42 knots with a high maneuver capability.
Its load capability allows to embark payloads near to 1,000 kg. so, it is an adaptable platform for different applications.
A Ground Control Station is available to control the USV and receive telemetries.
The SV01P offers different configurations, from the basic with a direct control link system to completely autonomous with OTH (Over The Horizon) links.
The first tests with the unmanned system was successfully performed using a radio link with the Ground Control Station.
UTEK’s first Prototype, SV01P, was launched in San Juan reservoir where subsystems tests begin. During the first navigation, TOURON experts checked engine performances with NARWHAL platform.
