TRS & BME NQ have passed a significant milestone delivering 2 X Army Safety Watercraft (ASW) to Townsville Army Base and 3 X ASWs to Army Stores Moorebank.
Following a collaborative partnership Army Marine, TRS, and BME evolved the design and engineering of the ASW and trailer resulting in a modern platform that satisfies the Army’s assignments.
Army Marine required a boat to perform dedicated missions deploying by road and then out to sea or onto inland waters.
Weight control was a major factor in remaining within towing rules, while also maintaining performance, and capability and giving the crew a high level of comfort on the high seas.
To meet the requirement State-of-the-art specialised equipment has been fitted, and the structure is uniquely designed to ensure the strength and longevity of the ASW and trailer.
The ASW is built under NSCV rules to 2C.
