Powered by Marine Tensor™

Marine Tracer™ is a portable, single operator USV (uncrewed surface vessel) combining compact form factor with real-time imaging and autonomous navigation for a variety of marine applications.

Ready to launch in seconds, Marine Tracer™ can target multiple destinations with precise accuracy, perform underwater SONAR scans, and deploy three unique payloads in a single route.

Compact Form Factor

From Car to Water in Seconds

At only 0.83 m and 11.5 kg, Marine Tracer™ utilizes a compact design that excels in fast-paced environments and gives you the flexibility to hit the water at a moment’s notice. Unlike other USV vessels, you can launch Marine Tracer™ in water levels as shallow as 10 inches, eliminating the need of a dedicated docking area or team.  


Autonomous Navigation

Adaptable. Repeatable. Precise.

Marine Tracer™ is powered by Marine Tensor™, Marine Thinking’s AI-based intelligent navigation system for the autonomous navigation and operation of USVs. 

Using simple and intuitive touchscreen controls, quickly and easily pre-set multiple target locations for a single route. Once set, Marine Tensor™ autonomously calculates and implements the optimal navigation strategy to successfully complete your mission.

Unexpected environmental changes? No problem. Switch to manual control to at any time. Once course corrected, switch back to autonomous navigation and return to the mission route.
