Networking of uncrewed and autonomous vehicles as a force multiplier
For many voyages or missions, multi-vessel operations are a necessity and may include tandem, leader-follower, convoying or swarm operations. Managing multiple uncrewed surface vessels (USVs) simultaneously is a cognitive burdenon an operator.
Now a single MASS operator can command multiple autonomous vessels retaining full situational awareness.
Operating multiple autonomous USVs in a collaborative manner reduces the operator burden, retaining operational efficiency and effectiveness.
