New Unmanned Boat Launch and Recovery System

Industry Database

At this years’ Seawork Henriksen Hooks will be showcasing a new system to address the challenge of recovering unmanned and autonomous craft in difficult sea conditions.

The leading manufacturer of boat launching hook systems is confident that this new development will attract the interest of all unmanned vessel operators, including research, survey and military organisations.

Developed in Norway, the new Henriksen system can be used to launch and recover a range of craft from large, remotely controlled RIBs to autonomous Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs) and will enable operators to work in a wide range of weather conditions. It provides the additional benefit of being usable with existing davits and has no need for special tools during launching or recovery.

Henriksen Hooks say, “The quality and reliability of Henriksen products will also benefit the personnel working closely with the unmanned vessels and add to the security of what may be expensive and valuable experimental craft.”

Visitors to the Henriksen stand at Seawork will be able to see a working model of the innovative new system.
