The Most Advanced Technology Riverine Craft
Swiftships is proud to be contributing to the evolution of riverine warfare since World War II. During the Vietnam War, we delivered 193 Swift Boats to the U.S. Navy, equipped with the highest-level technology and weapons, which gave the U.S. Navy strategic and tactical advantages.
Since then, Swiftships continued to evolve as a shipbuilding company, and developed more advanced solutions for the military. Today, our riverine platforms feature superior capabilities such extreme maneuverability and survivability, and top performance in extreme conditions.
Our vessels are easily customized based on the client’s preferences. They can be configured to be unmanned, semi-manned or remotely controlled. They also integrate advanced technologies and systems such as lasers, cameras, ultrasound and other sensors, that gauge currents and waves, to detect obstacles in the water, such as logs or oncoming boats. The collected information is assessed by a system that makes real time decisions, and reacts quickly, steering and accelerating the boat as if an experienced human pilot was navigating it.
Military missions today
Vessel is designed to support the efforts of military operations on in-land waters by providing the combined advantages of power, speed, stealth, greater mobility, ease of deployment, and mission success. The newest technology allows operations to be effectively implemented without any human endangerment.
The World war II
The mission objective of the Swift Boat was to provide the Navy with a fast boat that could patrol the many miles of river shores for enemy soldiers. The Swift Boat was equipped with advanced technology, and allowed navigation of short river channels that were inaccessible to most small boat designs at the time.
