Exail Unveils Revolutionary Transoceanic Uncrewed Surface Technology for Global Exploration

redundant architecture, advanced communication systems, as well as AI powered obstacle detection and avoidance capabilities. This combination of features ensures a high level of reliability and operational efficiency, allowing for enhanced autonomous operations at sea. The DriX O-16 is equipped with multi-mission capabilities, making it a versatile platform for a wide range of applications.

One of the key highlights of the DriX O-16 is its ability to launch and recover various subsea assets, including Remotely Operated Towed Vehicles (ROTVs), inspection-class Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs), and Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs). Its gondola, located below the surface, can accommodate different payloads such as deep-water Multibeam Echosounders (MBES), Sub-Bottom Profilers (SBP), and acoustic subsea positioning and communication systems (USBL). This makes the DriX O-16 well-suited for tasks such as full ocean depth scientific and hydrographic surveys, geophysical and UXO surveys, as well as subsea infrastructure inspection and surveys that may require the deployment of multiple robots.

With its advanced capabilities and robust design, the DriX O-16 represents a significant advancement in the field of autonomous surface vessels. It builds upon the success of its predecessor, the DriX USV, which has a proven track record of over 150,000 hours of operations in various countries. The DriX O-16’s hybrid propulsion system, redundant architecture, and AI-powered obstacle detection make it a reliable and efficient platform for long-duration missions at sea.

Overall, Exail’s new transoceanic Uncrewed Surface Vessel, the DriX O-16, offers a cutting-edge solution for autonomous operations in challenging ocean conditions. Its versatility, reliability, and advanced features make it a valuable asset for a wide range of applications, from scientific research to subsea infrastructure inspection.
