The USV INSPECTOR 120 is a high reliable multipurpose naval platform. Based on a sea proven hull shape it is designed for very demanding operations in various sea state conditions. The performances of its electronics and its navigation accuracy make it compliant with manned, remote controlled and fully autonomous coastal and open sea maritime missions such as infrastructure protection, mine warfare or rapid environmental assessment.

Its wide aft deck and open structure enable the USV INSPECTOR 120 to deploy a large scale of payloads including AUVs and ROVs. Its powerful propulsion makes it the perfect platform for towing large side scan sonar or sweep.

A more performant Unmanned Surface Vessel

The INSPECTOR 120 includes all the features that made the INSPECTOR 90 a success with an increased performances allowing to carry the most performant unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs).

Its main advantages includes :

  • Greater endurance,
  • Higher payload capacity
  • Superior nautical performance


Modularity: Configure according to your needs

Adaptable, this surface vessel can be operated in both autonomous mode, remoted control or onboard steering, while its open design permits to deploy a large range of payloads.

ECA Group's USVs can be customized according to specific needs in terms of sensors, or performance requirements expressed by the customer.

Thus, it is also fully compatible with missions requiring the deployment other drones and sonars, enabling to carry out a wide range of operations for both homeland security and maritime applications. 

Its performances and its accuracy make it efficient in protection missions, reccurent operations, mine warfare activities and Rapid Environment Assessment.


MCM warships & UMISTM compatible

Another key element of INSPECTOR USVs is its integration in UMISTM making it possible to run missions at sea involving several naval robots simultaneously from a single command center. Its ability to carry and automatically deploy other naval drones such as Mine Identification and Destruction Systems (MIDS), including ECA Group's underwater robots for identification (SEASCAN) and neutralization (K-STER C) of sea mines, enable to reduce human exposure to danger.

The hull of the INSPECTOR 120 has been specifically designed to be the best compromise for sea keeping, both in transit and at very low speeds for launching and recovery of UUVs.

The INSPECTOR 120 can be deployed from any vessel of length about 50m and beyond.
