Masaki Endo, Managing Director  of Shoshin, said  “The MANTAS USV is the world’s first ideal USV which combines the maneuverability, high endurance (reliability), and operability capabilities necessary for our users’ future investment into unmanned operations.  It is the world’s first high performance USV and  its deploy ability and special capabilities will lead to cost-effectiveness in our customers’ projects.  We are confident that we can meet the future USV market demands in our new partnership with MARTAC”.
