Protect critical infrastructure and deter underwater threats

  • Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) vulnerability: gas pipelines and communication cables face growing attack risks.
  • Beyond submarines: diverse underwater threats necessitate advanced detection solutions.
  • Balancing cost and coverage: traditional methods lack flexibility and scalability.
  • USVs with advanced sensing: a multi-layered approach for efficient and effective protection.
  • Autonomy and collaboration: optimise sensor deployment and data analysis for wider coverage.
