Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL), a leading Indian defense and aerospace company, has unveiled a groundbreaking innovation: a zero-emission Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) designed for hydrographic surveying and coastal surveillance. This versatile USV boasts eco-friendly operations and the potential for various applications, making it a valuable asset for both civilian and defense purposes.

The USV stands out for its commitment to sustainability. It leverages solar energy harvesting to power its operations, eliminating harmful emissions and reducing reliance on fossil fuels. This makes it an ideal solution for environmentally sensitive tasks like surveying and monitoring marine ecosystems.

BEL’s USV is not a one-trick pony. Here’s a glimpse into its capabilities:

  • Hydrographic Surveying: The USV’s ability to carry a payload of 30kg makes it perfect for hydrographic surveying tasks. Equipped with the necessary sensors, it can efficiently map underwater features, gather vital data, and contribute to creating accurate nautical charts.
  • Coastal Surveillance: With its remote control mode and waypoint navigation, the USV can be deployed for coastal surveillance. It can patrol designated areas, monitor activity, and provide valuable information for security purposes.
  • Adaptability: BEL highlights the USV’s customizability for logistics operations. This opens doors for potential applications in transporting small supplies or equipment over water bodies.
  • Kamikaze Missions: The report also mentions the possibility of customizing the USV for “kamikaze applications.” However, specifics on this potential use are limited.

BEL’s USV offers several advantages. It reduces risks associated with deploying manned vessels in potentially dangerous situations. Furthermore, its solar-powered operation cuts down on operational costs and environmental impact.
