MAURIC has been designing patrol boats, OPVs and military vessels for more than 50 years. As an independent naval architecture firm, MAURIC offers Sea-proven custom solutions to navies and other public authorities operating at sea.
Since ECA Group became the main share holder of MAURIC in 2016, ECA Group and MAURIC collaborated to develop innovative solutions for integration of naval drones on board vessels. Resulting from these joint developments, MAURIC designed OCTOPODA, a range of ships with specifications similar to those of patrol boats or OPVs, but specifically adapted for mine counter measure at sea using drones and robots systems from 30 to 50m. Come and discover OCTOPODA 300 and OCTOPODA 500, the first units of naval drones motherships how MAURIC and ECA Group are proposing completely integrated solutions comprising motherships and UMISTM systems dedicated to mine warfare.
On ECA Group booth, MAURIC will also present its latest design of Unmanned surface Vehicle, the INSPECTOR 120. INSPECTOR 120, a 12m USV includes all the features that made the INSPECTOR 90 a success with a greater endurance, a higher payload capacity and superior nautical performances. It has been designed to automatically deploy the most performant ECA Group unmanned systems such as AUV (Autonomous Underwater Vehicle) A18-M, towed sonars T18-M, MIDS, etc. The hull of the INSPECTOR 120 is a best compromise for sea keeping, both in transit and at very low speed for launch and recovery of UUVs. Thanks to dedicated Launch And Recovery Systems (LARS) also proposed by ECA Group, INSPECTOR 120 can be deployed from any vessel of length about 50m and beyond.
