This 54′ Unmanned Surface Vessel (USV) was built on-site in Washington State with Zyvex Technologies. The USV leverages Zyvex Technologies nano-enhanced prepreg carbon fiber to reduce weight and increase payload and range. The USV has a demonstrated a fuel consumption rate of 12 gallons per hour at a cruising speed of 24 kts. Compared to a traditional boat’s consumption of 50 gallons per hour, the Piranha offers a 75% reduction in fuel consumption costs.
The Piranha can be configured for multiple payloads, depending on the mission.
