Unmanned Surface Vehicles (Defense) - Thematic Research


This report focuses on Unmanned Surface Vehicles, which will be force multiplier in future naval operations. Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs) thematic research offers a detailed analysis of USVs being developed and used by navies and other maritime organizations. The research includes insightful industry analysis of the USVs and key use cases highlighting how Navies worldwide have started working on developing and implementing the technology.

With the development of computer, communication, command and control, and artificial intelligence technologies and their widespread use in the military field, the use of autonomous systems is increasing significantly every day in order to reduce costs and keep humans out of dangerous zones and tasks.

Unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) also have the potential to be used as force multipliers in many areas of naval operations, with their modular structures and their ability to carry many different payloads.

With the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in USVs at full maturity, it is expected that by the end of 2020, USVs will take part in naval battle groups with manned platforms.

Naval forces and defense industry companies around the world have increased their investment in USV technologies. In fact, leading shipbuilders such as HII, Fincantieri, Austal, and BAE systems are competing for the highest share of the growing USV market.


- Navies and companies, cooperating with universities and research and development centers, have been developing and experimenting with various USVs for many years and have transitioned some of these efforts into procurement/manufacture programs. There are still many USV programs under development and at the technology demonstration level.
- A key driver for the development of USVs is to move people away from contested and dangerous environments to avoid casualties.
- Large SUSVs, MSUVs and LUSVs have generally switchable and modular mission payload suites, therefore, they can perform multi-mission changing mission modules. Collective advances in technology allow these vehicles to execute more complex missions, with increased autonomy and their own support packages. However, small vehicles such as VSUSVs, SUSVs and Gliders are better suited to single type missions, such as hydrographic survey and ISR missions.
