Protecting Offshore Energy Infrastructure Using Unmanned Surface Vessels (USVs)

Offshore Source Article lists MANTAS as an emerging technology enabling the safety and security of offshore energy infrastructure .

This can result in a substantial decrease in the number of ROV missions and the use of human divers.
