ESCRIBANO M&E and the Spanish shipyard FERRI have jointly developed an autonomous vessel (USV) equipped with a Remote Weapon Station SENTINEL-ASPIS, and an advanced Electro-Optical System OTEOS.

This autonomous system is designed to operate during both day and night, and in adverse weather conditions. The USV can be remotely-operated from a command and control center, either on autonomous or manual mode. It is an ideal solution for border surveillance, advanced observation missions, detection of toxic spills and fighting against drug trafficking.

Both the RWS and OTEOS, can be controlled by a BMS (Battle Management System) that eases decision-making situations during different missions such as advanced observation, surveillance, target tracking, etc. in which the operator controls both systems from the same command and control console.
