ASV has completed the construction of four C-Worker 5 vehicles. These state-of-the-art Autonomous Surface Vehicles (ASVs) will be added to ASV’s global lease pool in the second quarter of 2016. While the C-Worker 5 can accommodate a variety of client payloads and applications, it was specifically designed as a hydrographic survey force multiplier.

The C-Worker 5 is five metres in length and can operate at 7 knots for 5 days before refuelling. This speed/range combination maximises acquisition effectiveness while minimizing launch and recovery operations. As a force multiplier, it can operate concurrently alongside traditional survey vessels, dramatically increasing survey efficiency.

The C-Worker 5 uses a direct drive marine diesel propulsion system operated via ASV’s proven ASView™ control system. The C-Worker 5 integrates quickly and easily with a wide variety of payloads including hull mounted and towed sensors. The ASView™ control system enables line plans from a variety of data acquisition systems to be uploaded for efficient data collection.

Thomas Chance, ASV’s Chairman stated, “The C-Worker 5 is an exciting new ASV that will dramatically help our clients’ bottom line. The new vehicle also complements ASV’s C-Worker 6 and C-Worker 7 product line which can accommodate larger payloads.”
