ASV Delivers Marine Target Drones to South Korea

Autonomous Surface Vehicles (ASV) Ltd complete the second phase of a marine target drone programme with South Korea. 

Following the initial phase, completed in November 2013, this second phase sees GigaRF take delivery of two further 9 metre marine target drones. The high speed drones will be used in the test and evaluation of a new weapon system by the Agency of Defence Development (ADD).

The unmanned technology enables training simulation for Naval Personnel in combating the threat of Fast Inshore Attack Craft (FIAC). Also available in manned modes, the drones can be customised to meet visual, thermal and radar signature requirements.

The target drone testing and acceptance, completed last month (March 2014) and witnessed by ADD saw the drones operate completely unmanned, controlled via ASV’s in-house control software ASView, reaching speeds of up to 50 knots.

In addition to the target drones that range from 3 to 13 metres, ASV have also designed and built vehicles for military MCM operations, the oil and gas and science and survey industries.
