L3Harris Showcases Autonomous Surface Vehicle Technology In A Port Environment

Friday August 30th, 2019 TAGS: , , ,

In August 2019, L3Harris Unmanned Maritime Systems (UMS) demonstrated its industry-leading Autonomous Surface Vehicle (ASV) technology at a workshop in the Port of Hamburg.

The workshop, in collaboration with Hamburg Port Authority, MacArtney Germany, and HafenCity University, successfully showcased the C-Cat 3’s and C-Worker 5’s abilities to autonomously navigate and scan a port environment.

The ASVs were operated using L3Harris’ proprietary ASView Control System, including COLREG aware collision avoidance capability.

Integrated with the C-Worker 5 was a SeaBat T50-P multibeam for mapping the seabed, and a Polaris TLS LiDAR to scan the harbour walls and surrounding features. The C-Cat 3 aided this operation by measuring the topography of the seafloor.

High quality data was then fed back to the audience during the live demonstration on screens in the dockside presentation area.

L3Harris UMS have vast experience operating ASVs in a wide variety of inshore environments, and this demonstration shows just a taste of what ASVs can offer.
