Modular and Scalable Design for Rapid Payload Conversion

The Marine Tactical Systems MANTAS Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) was a star performer at the Teledyne Marine Technology Workshop in San Diego.

The MANTAS was developed by MARTAC, using a flexible, modular and open architecture. MANTAS can easily be launched from shore, from small craft or directly off the deck of a ship. MANTAS can operate at slow, ISR or underwater detection speeds as well as increasing to sprint speeds to proceed to its next mission location. The modularity and scalability of the MANTAS design allows rapid payload conversions to be performed in a short time by removing and replacing payload panels/hatches within its high-performance catamaran hull. This allows for longer duty cycles and less down time.

At the core of the MARTAC USV system is a custom MARTAC designed, and built, MANTAS USV hull. MANTAS is a lightweight electric propulsion, carbon fiber body, USV. More importantly, MANTAS employ a patented aerodynamic/hydrodynamic catamaran hull design for stability and superior manoeuvrability at high speeds. MANTAS hulls have endured hundreds of hours of runtime, are self-righting, and have proven to operate and survive in high seas.

At TMTW the MANTAS USV was launched and demonstrated its high-speed and ease of control in manoeuvres on Mission Bay. Setup and configuration of the robust USV was minimal. All equipment inside the free-flooding hull is fully sealed making for ease of operation.
