Greensea Systems, a provider of advanced robotics solutions, announced the successful demonstration of a mission to locate buried munitions in the surf zone.
This UXO survey demonstrated the power and flexibility of OPENSEA to rapidly integrate and deploy a new sensor suite for the task while showcasing the capabilities of the Bayonet 250 AUGV, which was selected as a finalist in The Defense Innovation Unit's (DIU) Autonomous Amphibious Response Vehicle (A2RV) program's rapid prototyping phase. Out of 67 proposals, the Bayonet 250 crawler prototype, developed in partnership with Greensea, was chosen for its exceptional performance and potential to detect, identify, and neutralise naval mines and other explosive hazards in the challenging surf and beach landing zones.
Operating over 8 days and covering 18 square kilometers in depths of up to 10 feet, amidst wave heights of 4-6 feet in the challenging surf zone, the Bayonet 250 provided a stable and reliable platform for conducting the survey that included a towed sled equipped with White River Technology's (WRT) marine APEX technology, seamlessly integrated into Greensea’s software platform, OPENSEA.
