Boeing demonstrates SHARC in Hawaii

16th January 2015 - 10:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Boeing has demonstrated the Sensor Hosting Autonomous Remote Crafts (SHARCs) off the coast of Hawaii, the company said on 13 January.

SHARCs are used for data collection, surveillance and acoustic monitoring. In September 2014, Boeing and Liquid Robotics signed a multi-year agreement to enhance the unmanned marine vessel’s capabilities.

The demonstration took place in Kamuela, Hawaii near Liquid Robotic’s engineering test and evaluation center.

SHARCs can operate in a fleet to connect with other SHARCs, on land data centres and a variety of Boeing marine and aerial assets. They can be at sea for up to a year without a manned crew or servicing, which mostly involves removing barnacles from its sensors.
