The Naviator represents the first unmanned vehicle platform capable of operating both in air, surface and underwater and that can transition back and forth between these mediums seamlessly. SubUAS LLC, formed by the inventors of the Naviator, world experts in hybrid air/sea autonomous vehicles, is developing this technology for both commercial and military applications. The Naviator allows for rapid air/underwater deployment, and transition between underwater/air. Combined with high maneuverability and reliability of multirotor vehicles, this results in disruptive technologies that can extend operations, provide rapid response in the ocean battlespace environment and surveillance arena. Battlefield applications for this new platform include launch and recovery from air, water or ground vehicles, rapid response to investigate threats, delivering payloads, rapid deployment of explosives to eliminate mines, smart buoy sensors, ships/ports inspections, stealth missions, air/water communications system, among others.
