Autonomous Surface Vehicles (ASV) latest Vehicle arrives at Trafalgar Wharf

One of our tenants, Autonomous Surface Vehicles, took delivery of their latest vehicle last week.  The vehicle has been designed for Thales UK to meet the challenges of future off-board Mine Countermeasures operations. 

The vehicle was delivered from MonsterCAM Marine Concepts based at Lee-on-the-Solent who carried out the hull and deck fibreglass work.

The vehicle is now under construction at ASV’s facilities and will be undergoing acceptance trials later this year. 

ASV Ltd is a UK company and part of Global Fusion, a privately owned international marine services group. Formed in 1998, ASV Ltd provides rugged, reliable and effective unmanned systems using cutting edge marine technology from its operating base near Portsmouth.

Dan Hook, Managing Director at ASV, in receiving the vehicle says: “We are pleased to be developing such an advanced capability at Trafalgar Wharf and for the support provided by them”.

It is unconfirmed as to whether Daniel Craig will be using this in the next James Bond film.
