CUSV Mine Hunter Drone Boat?

While waiting on the jetty for Eclipse to arrive I spotted what appears to be a CUSV Mine Sweeping Drone Boat. CUSV is a Common Unmanned Surface Vessel used by the US Navy in mine sweeping operations. This drone ship may be a simple underwater survey boat or it may be one of the drone mine sweepers on trails in Florida.


This drone boat was filmed at Fort Lauderdale inlet in South Florida. This inlet leads from the Atlantic Ocean to Port Everglades, a very busy cruise ship and cargo port.


TEXTRON is the builder of this drone boat, you can read more about the boat here.
