MARTAC press release
With launch and recovery of maritime USVs playing an increasingly critical role in the utilization of unmanned maritime systems in military, commercial and scientific markets, end-users recognize thatmany USV implementations are abandoned or underutilized due to the inability to effectively deploy and recover in mission critical situations. Launching and recovering USVs in maritime environments represents a major impediment to USV adoption. The MARTAC-Henriksen partnership brings together deep skills in high performance USVs and launch and recovery technologies to support customers’ successful USV missions while reducing operational risk.
In addition to the development of integrated systems to improve high-performance USV adoption, H.Henriksen will support Martac on global sales.
“The MARTAC-Henriksen partnership is a powerful combination. Henriksen’s understanding of complex launch and recovery systems and its deep engineering expertise is uniquely complimentary to MARTAC’s innovative best-in-class high performance MANTAS systems. We believe this helps to generate industry leading technology products and platforms. With a broad L&R product line capable of supporting both MANTAS X-Class (2 – 3.6m) and Medium Class (7 – 20m) launch and recovery systems as well as their long history of delivering quality solutions in the European and world markets, this partnership will allow us to drive far greater adoption for our customers.”
