Exail’s DriX USV Receives Lloyd’s Register Certification

Lloyd’s Register, a leading maritime classification society, has awarded the DriX maritime drone its first Unmanned Surface Vessel (USV) certification.

Developed by high-tech company and pioneer in the field of maritime autonomy, Exail, the DriX USV is operated by leading hydrographic research institutes and energy companies around the world and already has Bureau Veritas Approval in Principles (AiP). I am receiving

The new certification proves that underwater drones meet important safety requirements for operations at sea.

The DriX system design was reviewed against the Lloyd’s Register Code for Unmanned Vessel Systems.

This included detailed system-level analysis, construction surveys, and sea trials. This review covered critical design areas such as structural integrity, stability, and command and control in the context of remotely monitored autonomy.

This new certification by Lloyd’s Register is another milestone for DriX USV and its operators and marks a major step forward in the maritime industry’s transition towards the adoption of new autonomous technologies.

Paul JamesLloyd’s Register Naval Center of Experts Manager said: Responsible deployment of autonomous technology.

“The open and collaborative approach taken by our team has made it much easier to investigate the specific risks associated with autonomous systems and ensure appropriate and appropriate controls are in place. , can provide clear and robust safety arguments, backed by independent approval from Lloyd’s Register.

“At Exail, we are closely involved in developing regulations for maritime drones to increase USV standards and acceptance,” he explains. Stephan Vannuferen, Exail’s Marine Autonomy Technical Director. “Lloyds, who has demonstrated the highest levels of safety and environmental compliance for maritime drones, will work with class societies such as the Register to demonstrate that the deployment and operation of autonomous technology is safe.

“Through collaborations like this, we hope to strengthen the global acceptance of marine drones within the industry to support operational efficiency and a safe and sustainable ocean energy transition.”
