ECUVE (Environmental Control with Unmmaned Vessels)

The general objective of the ECUVE project is to develop a system based on unmanned vessels known as USV. The specific objective of the project is to orient it to environmental surveillance and control in the marine field. This project is funded by the Canarian Agency for Research, Innovation and the Information Society (ACIISI) and by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF)

POSEUS (Port Security based in Unmanned Systems)

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.

SCUVE (Spill Control with Unmanned Vessels)

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.

LEUS (Long Endurance USV Solution)

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.
