About Us
Marine Advanced Robotics, Inc. was founded in 2004 by a small group of Silicon Valley innovators. In 2007, the 100' Proteus was launched in the San Francisco Bay, introducing the WAM-V (Wave Adaptive Modular Vessel Technology) to the world. For the past decade, we have continued to design, manufacture, and test a range of both manned and unmanned WAM-Vs. We believe our products represent a technological advancement in future capabilities for multiple industries. Our mission is to manufacture and deliver to our customers the most reliable and robust USVs available on the market.

WAM-V Technology
The Wave Adaptive Modular Vessel (WAM-V) is an innovative class of watercraft (both autonomous and manned) using unique suspension technology to radically improve seagoing capabilities. The articulating system uses springs, shocks and ball joints to minimize structural loading. The result is an ULTRA-LIGHT, MODULAR vessel that can perform in sea conditions where an ordinary boat of similar size could no longer operate. The incredibly SHALLOW DRAFT and arches contribute to the GANTRY CRANE functionality.

Wave Adaptive Suspension
Unlike conventional boats, the WAM-V's flexible structure adapts and conforms to the surface of the water resulting in an exceptionally SMOOTH and LEVEL platform. Inflatable pontoons help absorb motion and force. Two engine pods are hinged to the hulls which keep the propellers in the water at all times, further improving vehicle stability and controllability. The 2:1 length-to-beam ratio, along with the articulating suspension systems, makes the WAM-V an exceptionally MANEUVERABLE and STABLE vessel.

The 8 ft WAM-V was designed from the ground up with portability in mind. Able to be loaded in the back of a standard pickup truck, or checked onto a domestic airline flight, the 8 ft model brings disruptive WAM-V technology to an expanded field of operations. With the same exceptional stability of all WAM-Vs, this vessel will fill a gap in the market ... Moreby bringing improved data acquisition to rough seas and hard-to-reach environments.

The first WAM-V 8 is slated for delivery in the first quarter of 2019 with full production to begin in the second quarter. Pre-order now to reserve yours.
