iXblue has delivered a DriX unmanned aerial vehicle (USV) to the Polish Navy’s Hydrographic Department for research applications.
The DriX is an 8m USV designed to perform various missions such as hydrographic surveys.
It is equipped with advanced sensors such as radar, lidar, camera, and artificial intelligence (AI).
iXblue said the USV will further enhance the Polish Navy’s waterway capabilities.
