BlueZone Group supported the Australian Army with rapid development of novel capability options for the provision of a Z-Boat fleet. These capabilities will make significant contributions to Army’s urgent and pressing need to de-risk the riverine environment and will provide users with comprehensive and accurate data to assist a broad range of operations – including humanitarian relief.
Development work for new robotic boat technology for Army was driven by technologies available from the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) or ‘drone’ world. The large amount of light-weight and low-cost technologies developed for drone applications provides many options for application to the Robotic Z-Boat. Miniaturisation of navigation systems such as Inertial Navigation Systems and GPS are very suitable for Z-Boat applications. Combined with sensors such as LiDAR and multi-beam sonar the Z-Boats can provide a powerful capability in an easily deployed package
At BlueZone Group we are constantly seeking opportunities to develop products to improve and complement the Z-Boat capability.
