Advanced Obstacle Avoidance

The Apache 3 Pro is equipped with a radar system that detects obstacles within a 110-degree field of view. When an obstacle is encountered, the USV automatically charts a new course around the obstacle, reducing the risk of collision during operations.

Lightweight and Durable

Weighing only 10 kg, the Apache 3 Pro can be easily deployed by a single operator to work in a wide range of operating conditions even with a fully integrated payload. With its lightweight carbon fiber hull, IP67 rating and semi-recessed motor, it offers exceptional durability and maneuverability, and allows speeds up to 6 m/s.

High Accuracy - Always

The GNSS RTK and inertial navigation sensor maintain high precision positioning even when GNSS signal is lost. This allows the Apache 3 Pro to automatically navigate under bridges and continuously provide high-precision position to stay on its course. The built-in CHCNAV D270 echosounder provides reliable depth measurement from 0.2 to 40 meters.
