Coast Guard Interested In Unmanned Offshore Surveillance Platforms

US NAVYThe Coast Guard wants information on unmanned maritime vehicles and systems intended to aid offshore monitoring of drug smuggling, illegal fishing and iceberg formations.

Coast Guard officials are conducting market research into unmanned surface, underwater and hybrid platforms that can potentially support the branch’s offshore surveillance activities, the Coast Guard said in a Wednesday request for information.

According to the FedBizOpps notice,  the project seeks persistent UMVs that are built to operate for several weeks or months without marine personnel onboard.

The service is also interested in UMV sensors, data processors and communication systems.

Responses to the request for information will be accepted until May 2.
