With this partnership, BlueZone is an authorized dealer for the class leading MANTAS unmanned surface vehicle (USV) and its systems to customers in these markets.  The MANTAS is an innovative, catamaran USV that is a safer, highly accurate, and cost-effective means to perform a variety of missions and applications in maritime environments.

As an authorized dealer, BlueZone will provide full-service sales, marketing and support for the MANTAS and its operation to their customers.  Of the company’s recent partnership, MARTAC’s CMO Stephen Ferretti said, “We are excited to work with BlueZone to offer MANTAS to their markets.  BlueZone Group has unique experience with more than 40 years in the subsea industry.   As an authorized dealer, we will work with BlueZone Group management to develop new opportunities for our MANTAS USV System as well as enhance the capabilities of this versatile platform.”

BlueZone Group management recognized the opportunity the MANTAS USV presents to the maritime market compared to existing manned and unmanned maritime systems.  This is possible because the MANTAS USV is an open architecture platform combing a superior performance envelope with many above and below-surface sensors and communications kits to perform a wide range of military missions such as ISR, ship escort, transport logistics and mine countermeasures to cite some examples as well as commercial applications such as asset inspection, bathymetric mapping and environmental monitoring.  The maneuverability and speed of the MANTAS unmanned system, along with the easy-to-use TASKER control system allowed users, through MANTAS, to perform a wider variety of missions and applications in challenging environments.
