LIG Nex1 has developed and introduced Sea Sword maritime drones for reconnaissance and strikes against enemy targets, similar to Ukrainian surface drones.

Sea Sword-II is a reconnaissance drone capable of performing surface and underwater reconnaissance missions. It is equipped with an ROV module for detecting sea mines and underwater vessels. For additional firepower, a 20 mm cannon can be installed on the bow of the boat.

The platform is equipped with sensors, including a navigation camera, electro-optical and infrared (EO/IR) sensors, obstacle detection sensors, radar, antenna communication, GPS, automatic identification system (AIS) and artificial intelligence for autonomous navigation and obstacle avoidance.

Technical characteristics of Sea Sword-II:

  • Length: 12 m;
  • width: 3,5 м;
  • displacement: 9.2 tons (light load);
  • speed: over 40 knots;
  • range: up to 20 km (extendable with a range extender);
  • EO/IR tracking: 7 km.

Technical characteristics of Sea Sword-III:

  • Length: 15 m;
  • width: 3,8 м;
  • displacement: 9.8 tons (light load);
