SeaRobotics Corporation delivered an Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) in their 5.7-m hull series to the NATO's Center for Marine Research and Experimentation (CMRE).

The general purpose USV will be utilized to improve payload capacity and efficiency of the impressive, fully autonomous mine neutralization system developed at CMRE. With over 350 kg of payload, the ability to be configured as an all-electric or as a diesel-electric hybrid system, and the ability to reach speeds in excess of 5 m/sec, the 5.7-m system will excel in numerous applications. Enhancing its role in mine neutralization operations or many other tasks, the system can ship worldwide in a standard 20-ft container. The engineered boat trailer doubles as a shipping cart and allows transport of the exceptionally stable USV at a reduced beam on the road or in a container.

The Searobotics product line of USVs includes both 5.7-m and 11-m vessels, both of which can be used in arctic operations.
