Autonomast System

By US Department of Defense

U.S. Indo-Pacific Command Science and Technology Office hosted the Singapore Ministry of Defense, Future Systems and Technology Directorate sponsored demonstration of an Unmanned Surface Vessel (USV) featuring the AUTONOMAST system at Marine Corps Base Hawaii (MCBH), Oct. 19-26, 2022.

The AUTONOMAST system developed by ST Engineering, a global technology, defense and engineering group headquartered in Singapore, is designed to convert any manned vessel into an USV, with all-round situational awareness capabilities for tracking stationary or moving surface obstacles for safe autonomous navigation.

The demonstration, with support from MCBH Waterfront Operations, focused on autonomous navigation in congested waters and force protection maneuvers.
