SEA-KIT Uncrewed Surface Vessels (USVs) are designed to provide a low-cost and environmentally low-impact solution to the many challenges posed by commercial offshore projects. These adaptable, uncrewed and remotely-controlled vessels enable over-the-horizon deployment of systems and sensors for multiple use cases, including maritime logistics, environmental management, marine inspection and efficient survey of the ocean floors.
Through extended mission capability and reduced downtime, the deployment of SEA-KIT USVs represents significant cost savings as well as reduced carbon emissions for companies operating in the commercial offshore sector.
SEA-KIT X is a remotely controlled, versatile and configurable mother-ship platform that can launch and recover remote vehicles such as large AUV/UUVs or ROVs, enabling missions including deep-water bathymetry, off shore and subsea asset inspection and hydrographic survey with reduced risk to personnel, significantly decreased costs and lower environmental impact.
The SEA-KIT X USV’s large payload capacity, long range and proven, over-the-horizon endurance capability means that multiple missions can be undertaken in a solo capacity or as part of a larger fleet of crewed or uncrewed vessels.
SEA-KIT X is controlled using SEA-KIT’s proprietary G-SAVI control and surveillance platform, which provides safe and secure operation from remote control centres.
The SEA-KIT X class design holds Unmanned Marine Systems (UMS) certification from Lloyd’s Register.

The SEA-KIT H-Class USV’s highly configurable design, with a retractable gondola and dual sensor deployment options, is
based on a operational data and feedback collected from the proven and established X-Class USVs.
As well as increased power, seakeeping and fuel capacity, the vessel has a composite hull, reducing the ship’s weight with
the resulting fuel saving and endurance benefits. Active stabilisers minimise roll and improve data collection quality.
The H-Class design also further reduces surface and subsurface noise and vibration and offers flexible operational parameters. A variety of sensors can be accommodated in its retractable gondola, such as a Single/Multi Beam Echo Sounder or Sub Bottom Profiler. The USV can deploy a tow cage, SVP, MAPR, CTD and towfish/side scan sonar for successful deep water and nearshore bathymetric and hydrographic survey missions.

The SEA-KIT XL Uncrewed Surface Vessel (USV) is a robust and versatile mother-ship platform that can operate effectively at long range even in heavy seas. With a payload capacity of up to 7 tonnes and powerful bollard pull, the XL USV is suitable for towing seismic cables and larger sensors.
The XL can launch and recover a range of different vehicles and payloads, such as AUV/UUVs and ROVs, enabling the execution of multiple tasks at reduced cost and with less risk to personnel than crewed vessels. Fully redundant station holding capability, Cat 0 operations for unrestricted use and a large lithium UPS supply for ship systems make the SEA-KIT XL a high-endurance standalone asset or strong element of a larger fleet.
SEA-KIT XL is controlled using SEA-KIT’s proprietary G-SAVI control and surveillance platform, which provides safe and secure operation from remote control centres.

The SEA-KIT Omega Uncrewed Surface Vessel (USV) is designed for extended endurance, fully uncrewed maritime operations. With a large payload capacity and the capability to autonomously launch, recover and control subsea vehicles, including ROVs and AUV/UUVs, SEA-KIT Omega meets the demands of current and future off shore operations above and below the water.
Reduced crewing, with personnel controlling the USV in a safer, onshore environment, significantly reduces risk and costs. The vessel’s hybrid propulsion system delivers over-the-horizon endurance with minimal acoustic signature and a reduced CO2 footprint.
SEA-KIT Omega is controlled by SEA-KIT’s proprietary G-SAVI control and surveillance platform, which provides safe and secure operation from remote control centres.
