With the diversity of the ASV designs and types; and their widespread applications, a main challenge for the ASV team is to design and adapt each individual vessel to the  perational conditions and to tick as many boxes as possible on owner/operators “wish list”.

Whereas nice onboard motions, securing healthy passenger comfort, is a key driver for most passenger vessels, high speed capability, combined with improved range, will be requested from the navy- or paramilitary vessels. For pleasure boaters a good combination of operational economy, speed, space and handling are often requested.

Key benefits for ASV’s include:

   -  Market leading efficiency

   -  Reduced wake wash (important in sheltered waters)

   -  Safe handling with reduced motion (air cushion damping)

   -  Market leading transport efficiency and excellent operational economy
