Wam V

  1. 1. THE WAM-V WAVE ADAPTIVE MODULAR VESSELS
  2. 2. As the need for coastal and remote location surveillance and monitoring at the surface of oceans and other bodies of water has increased, so has the utilization of USVs (unmanned surface vessels) The WAM-V is the most ideal and best-suited platform for USVs: • Wave Adaptive: the hulls of a WAM-V conform to the surface of the water, acting like the tires of a car to absorb vibrations caused by high frequency waves inputs. The articulation and suspension systems dissipate the medium to low frequency waves. THE WAM-V WAVE ADAPTIVE MODULAR VESSELS
  3. 3. • Modularity payloads and instrument packages can be quickly switched, allowing mission-specific • Helicopter-like Functionality can pick up and deliver payloads from its center structure in open ocean or in very shallow water. • Reduced Footprint can be disassembled into components and packed for shipment. Alternatively, they can be designed to hydraulically, pneumatically or manually fold and reduce their footprint by up to 75%. • Stability & Maneuverability an exceptionally stable and seaworthy platform. Widely spaced engine pods afford a high degree of maneuverability, allowing the vessel to turn 360 within its own length. • Scalability can be built in different lengths to match specific applications.
  4. 4. Marine Advanced Research has introduced several variants of the original WAM-V: 12’, 14’, 16’ and 33’ WAM-V USVs. By the start of 2014, WAM-Vs will be operating in 5 different countries.
