AVT Australia and Maritime Robotics Partner to Enhance Autonomous Maritime ISR


Melbourne-based Ascent Vision Technologies Australia (AVTA), a CACI Company, is proud to support the integration of its CM62 Micro Gimbal with the Maritime Robotics Otter Uncrewed Surface Vessel (USV) platform for autonomous maritime intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) operations.

The Otter USV, designed for precise data acquisition and environmental monitoring in littoral and shallow areas, seamlessly integrates the CM62 for enhanced surveillance capabilities. Its modular catamaran design, along with an advanced navigation and control system, facilitates easy integration with leading survey sensors, ensuring high-quality ocean data collection.

Equipped with an efficient electric propulsion system, the Otter operates emission-free for up to 20 hours, depending on conditions and payload. Its compact and modular design enables convenient transportation and deployment, while an innovative plug-and-play system simplifies payload integration, enhancing mobility and versatility during field operations.

The CM62 Micro Gimbal is a gyro-stabilized imaging system with multi-sensor capabilities. With high-resolution electro-optical (EO) and long-wave infrared (LWIR) sensors, it delivers exceptional day and night situational awareness. Weighing just 260g, the CM62 ensures longer mission durations while featuring onboard video processing and on-gimbal automated object recognition for enhanced mission autonomy. The CM62’s capabilities help the user maintain persistent situational awareness and allows for littoral manoeuvre and control of strategic land position.

Together, the CM62 Micro Gimbal and Otter USV offer a robust solution for comprehensive autonomous surveillance and data acquisition, empowering operators with precise intelligence for mission success in maritime and coastal environments.

AVT Australia is a leading supplier of lightweight, gyro-stabilised imaging systems for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) and target acquisition operations. Recognised for expertise in advanced engineering services, AVT Australia is a trusted supplier of imaging solutions for Australian defence customers and international customers, with systems supporting operations in over 50 countries.
