Product Information

C-Cat 3

Small Multi-Purpose Work ASV

Product Overview
C-Cat 3 has been developed to complement the existing ocean going ASV Global vehicles for survey and support tasks where a smaller vehicle is better suited to missions. The design incorporates a large payload bay to enable flexibility of payloads used.

The shallow draft and small size of the vehicle enables deployment in littoral areas and its modular construction facilitates the fitting of a range of scientific above and below water payloads.

C-Cat-3 includes the core functionality proven in all ASV Global vehicles and systems and thus is a reliable and robust platform for path planning, autonomy research and scientific experimentation with payloads.
