California-based Ocean Aero is making waves in the Indian defence market with its innovative TRITON, the world’s first and only Autonomous Underwater and Surface Vehicle (AUSV). Kevin Decker, CEO of Ocean Aero, confirmed interest from both the Indian Coast Guard and Navy in this potentially game-changing technology.

The Triton boasts a unique ability to operate on both the water’s surface and submerged, offering a versatile platform for data collection. Ocean Aero claims the Triton can autonomously gather information from both above and below the ocean’s surface, before transmitting it from anywhere in real time.

Built for adaptability, the Triton is suited for a wide range of missions across various sectors. Pre-packaged payloads cater to 90% of defence, research, and offshore energy needs, while the system allows for the rapid development of specialized payloads for unique applications.

Optional high-tech payloads include advanced communication systems for transmitting large amounts of data in remote locations, alongside obstacle avoidance software and hardware to ensure the Triton can autonomously navigate unexpected challenges during missions.

The Triton is designed for extended operation, boasting a 3-month sailing range on solar and wind power at speeds of up to 5 knots. For submerged missions, the Triton can operate autonomously for up to 5 days at a time, travelling at 2 knots.

The Triton comes equipped with a comprehensive communication suite, including Iridium, Wi-Fi, 900Mhz connections, and some of the world’s most advanced radio mesh networks. Additionally, Ocean Aero offers the option to integrate further communication equipment to meet specific requirements.

The Triton prioritizes discretion with a low radar and visual signature. The radar cross-section reportedly disappears within a quarter-mile, while the colour scheme disrupts visual detection from as close as 100 meters. Furthermore, the autonomous deep-dive submergence capability allows the Triton to evade detection and potential threats.
