IMPROVED TACTICAL MISSION CAPABILITY

ReconCraft Expands Your Patrol Area

ReconCraft vessels improve detection, monitoring, and interdiction capabilities. The ability to patrol shallow or debris-laden water means one thing to professional operators: increased patrol coverage and more access with the same vessel.


ReconCraft provides this advantage by:

  • Utilizing the latest water-jet tunnel technology to minimize the depth of water required for propulsion
  • Using a proven and proprietary hull design with high strength-to-weight ratio and low "time to plane"
  • Optimizing water flow into the jet to maximize performance and increase propulsion efficiency
  • Integrating the patent-pending weed & debris system to maximize water flow to the impeller in areas laden with trash, debris, and aquatic vegetation
  • Facilitating rapid response in difficult-to-access areas

When the difference between complete success or total failure can come down to mere minutes or inches, it is essential to have the best tools available.

ReconCraft Mitigates Operational Risk

Underway military and law enforcement operations are inherently risky. Every ReconCraft design element complements Operational Risk Management and helps to reduce overall risk to an acceptable level.


ReconCraft provides this advantage by:

  • Providing a robust and battle-worthy hull structure that withstands the punishment of rescue, enforcement, and combat operations
  • Reducing crew fatigue with available systems such as shock mitigating seats, anti-fatigue deck matting, and sound/vibration insulation
  • Providing ergonomic and intuitive controls and instrument layouts designed by operators using human factor engineering principles

Crew and resource preservation are always top priorities and are directly related to tactical and strategic success.

ReconCraft Improves Operational Readiness

ReconCraft vessels boast extremely high reliability and extremely low operational downtime and maintenance costs.


ReconCraft provides this advantage by:

  • Providing quick and efficient access to critical components and systems for in-field and depot service and maintenance
  • Reducing the time to perform standard maintenance and service through well-engineered and intuitive component and system placements
  • Employing a “commonality of parts” strategy to reduce or eliminate the waiting time for spares. This can be tailored to a client’s own existing list of standard parts and components

Maintenance that is easy to perform is more likely to be performed, resulting in excellent materiel condition and high readiness rates.
