Next generation autonomous USV
Performs in environments & conditions where other USV’s cannot.
- Flexible configurations in 6’, 8’, 12’, 24’(7m), 38’(11m), & 50’(15m) variants.
- Electric Propulsion or Diesel/Electric for larger MANTAS-independent twin screw systems.
- Next generation ultra-safe Low-Lithium batteries for C5ISR and vessel operations.
- High-speed surface operation with “burst speed” capability up to 80 kts.
- Excellent range at cruise speeds.
- High Precision loitering and station keeping operations.
- Fully autonomous, semi-autonomous and full operator control modes.
- Sensor and communications agnostic.
- Solar Panels for extended endurance and persistence for open ocean operation.
- Extended in-field operations with open architecture and modular design allowing for rapid adaptation and integration of sensors, advance communications and improved energy payload
- Highly reliable systems with waterproof components within the MANTAS hull
- Optional “Stealth” Mode with a positively buoyant hull to minimize detection and perform “decks awash” operations
- Performs in environments and conditions where other USV’s are unable due to MANTAS’ high-performance envelope.
MARTAC™ designed the MANTAS™ vehicles specifically for multi-role autonomous unmanned operation.

Offshore Source Article lists MANTAS as an emerging technology enabling the safety and security of offshore energy infrastructure . This USV technology can be used
MANTAS USV demonstrated during 2018 Special Operations Forces Industry Conference on May 22. (SOFIC)
SOF reps from all services were provided with a hands-on demonstration where they were able to test-drive a twelvefoot MANTAS USV and see the real-time
