New Unmanned Naval Patrol Vehicle from Swedish Kockums

According to Swedish press the Swedish warefare shipyard Kockums will next week present a new type of unmanned, autonomous, remotely controlled naval patrol vehicles called Piraya. The four meter long vehicles can be used for patrolling and surveillance missions. The Pirayas can be controlled as a group by only one controller, without exposing personnel and capital assets to unnecessary risk. Patroling costs can also be reduced significally.

Kockums is part of ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems.
