The X3: Launch in minutes - Perform for months
From simple payload access to fast launchability and multi-month endurance, the X3 is made to maximize time on the water.
Keel removable for shipping
Electric drive system
Modular payload bay with power and comms ports
Satellite and cell communications
Composite construction displacement hull
“[Seasats] saved us a huge amount of technician time and significantly reduced the time from sample collection to sample analysis. We look forward to working with them on our next project!”
Jeff Bowman, Scripps Institution of Oceanography
A spacious modular payload bay makes it easy to swap and service sensors. A standard Blue Robotics 6″ enclosure fits perfectly, and connectors providing data and power for up to four payloads ensure fast electronic integrations.
Payloads the X3 has carried include:
- Sonar systems
- Water samplers
- Electronic warfare equipment
- Water temperature sensors
- Weather stations
- HF radios
- Underwater cameras
The best solution is the one that gets the job done with minimal complexity. That’s why the X3 has few moving parts, straightforward launch and recovery processes, and intuitive controls.
Maintenance and upgrades are a part of life for any technology meant to perform for years. Every component in the X3 is designed for easy access and maintenance.
In the open ocean, any design or manufacturing flaw can trigger a chain of failures. Seasats ASVs are built to complete missions even in conditions too demanding for crewed vessels.
