CMN unveiled the UHSI32 USV at the World Defence Show 2022, in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). Based on the HSI32 interceptor, the autonomous abilities and features of the unmanned varriant (known as UHSI32) have been developed by CMN in cooperation with Raytheon Anschütz and Sea Machines Robotics.
CMN was demonstrating the UHSI32’s ability to execute autonomous transit missions, pattern autonomy and dynamic collision avoidance while being operated via over-the-horizon network connectivity almost anywhere in the world. The UHSI32 was sailing off Cherbourg in France while being controlled form the CMN Naval stand at WDS 2022 in Saudi Arabia.
The UHSI32 combines multiple mission capabilities with high-speed performance (over 45 knots) and an extended patrol period of three days. With a length of 32m and beam of 7m, missions include maritime security, search-and-rescue (SAR), insertion, surveillance and protection of assets at sea.
