EMAPS Brochure

Environmentally Powered Modular Autonomous Platform System (EMAPS) Brochure

EMAPS is a family of medium speed electric Autonomous Surface Vessel (ASV) designs, developed to execute independent missions deploying any operator-defined payload within the platform geometry and power limits.

In a contested environment the uncrewed asset has a large advantage in risk tolerance and can press this advantage to tactical victory. This risk difference is currently re-defining land warfare.
