Abstract

Project AUTONOMAD examines the design of an unmanned trimaran vessel for unmanned application, integrating the deployment, recovery and storage of various Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs). It is tailor made for the needs of EU Coastguards in order to provide a platform for emission regulation enforcement, maritime monitoring and surveillance in the Mediterranean. This project includes the design of the unmanned vessel, the selection of its payload and the integration of the unmanned technologies in order to create a robust and reliable engineering system. The feasibility of such a vessel is then assessed in terms of reliability and overall benefit.
