  • L3 Harris Tapped to Deliver USV for Offshore Oil Spill Response

    Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are a familiar sight in the sky with the advent of drone technology. Less common is the Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) developed by L3Harris Technologies. In this article from Offshore Engineer, they look at how the technology is being used to contain oil spills and the spread of any contaminants without exposing any humans to the harmful substances.

    From the Article
    “This USV is a revolutionary step towards preventing the spread of harmful contaminants and eliminating human exposure to potentially toxic and highly flammable oil spill emergencies,” said Rosemary Chapdelaine, President, Maritime, L3Harris. “We continue to enhance our unmanned
    technologies to deliver vehicles that reduce the use of manned vessels in harsh environments.”

    C-Tug 3 is equipped with multiple sensors to provide the operator with feedback for the vehicle’s position, heading, wind direction, wind speed, water depth, fuel level, and numerous other data points. It will also have both daylight and thermal imaging cameras, with feeds being relayed real-time to the shore-based operator to aid in vessel manoeuvring."
