    Topic: “ DriX ”… a proven solution for offshore operations

    Refreshments Sponsor: Still Open, Please contact Rachel.Cluthe@seatronics-group.com

    Additional Info: 

    DriX has been designed with the absence of Human factor as a fundamental, from launch and recovery to mission’s execution.
    Fast, enduring, safe, high seas going and sea proven, it shows outstanding seakeeping capabilities and takes the industry of surface drones several steps further.

    Designed and built by iXblue' shipyard, following the in-house surveyors’ teams’ requirements, Drix has been refined with iXblue's long-time international major partners in the fields of Geosciences and Offshore Energy.

    Initially targeted at the civilian market, DriX has proved to be a real game changer and already conducted many successful operations ranging from subsea positioning to bathymetry missions. The Defense community identified DriX as a real asset which would bring added value on the battlefield while keeping crews out of harm’s way. Looking forward, iXblue continue to develop and expand the capabilities of USV`s for Offshore projects that require additional capacity.
