MacArtney Provides Winches for Textron USVs

MacArtney has supplied autonomously operating winches to US-based Textron Systems, for naval application on USVs.

The Common Unmanned Surface Vehicles (CUSVTM) will be provided with purpose-built winches designed and tested according to the MIL standards.

The scope of work comprises design, manufacture, assembly, testing and delivery of autonomous launch and recovery systems custom-engineered to adapt to specific customer requirements.

The ultimate purpose of the vehicles is the autonomous use of sweeping, localisation and neutralization of mines and other explosive devices with-out human interaction.

“Delivering outstanding system performance by combining technology and experience, MacArtney considers the outcome of this customizable solution excellent as it is applicable for many purposes. The autonomous aspect and self-diagnostics of the solution are very important factors and a specific material request made by our customer,” said MacArtney president Lars F. Hansen.

In addition to the mine countermeasure application, the USVs may target a wide range of commercial applications.
