A state of the art hydrographic platform designed for multi beam survey
The M40 USV has a typical payload capacity of 60 kg, its dry payload bay can be replaced on filed to install different sensors.

|Side scan sonar||Forward-looking sonar||Water quality sonde||Sub-bottom profiler|
A build-in automatic lifter can lift and drop the instrument depending on whether the USV is sailing or surveying, which can protect transducers and save energy correspondingly.
Both the component system and the mission system utilize a modular design, making it easy to switch between different mission deployments and maintain the USV.
The innovative wave-piercing bottom of the M40 USV can slice through waves to reduce shaking and noise during sailing which allows instruments to collect data of higher quality.
The steady catamaran hull design and low vibration electric propulsion provides great stability for survey navigation.
The M40 USV is driven by lithium polymer batteries and is able to reach the speed of 7 knots in full payload.
