    About - Bayonet Ocean Vehicles

    Bayonet Ocean Vehicles

    Bayonet Ocean Vehicles manufactures a series of amphibious tracked vehicles that can perform numerous tasks including transitioning from deep ocean into the surf zone and onto the beach, making them a powerful tool for operators working in multiple marine environments.

    We specialize in working in the surf zone, one of the toughest environments in the ocean and being the only commercially available tracked vehicles designed to work in this environment, we offer a platform that can work where ROVs, AUVs and USVs all cannot.

    Bayonet Ocean Vehicles builds all their vehicles on the OPENSEA platform from Greensea Systems providing our vehicles the most stable and adaptable operating system in marine robotics. This collaboration gives a Bayonet vehicle owner access to important capabilities such as precise navigation, vehicle autonomy, remote operation, component and payload integration not currently offered by anyone else in the tracked vehicle market.
