The 10.6 meter long vessel weighs four tons, of which 2.5 tons are payload including electro-optic naval payload and remote-controlled stabilized weapon station and enough fuel to maintain of 24 up to 36 hours missions, at ranges of up to 500 kilometers.

The Silver Marlin is powered by two 315 hp marine diesel engines capable of maintaining high cruising speed of 44 knots (81 km/h). This USV features adaptive boat control to enhance performance in rough conditions and at high speeds. The USV can be monitored from the shore or from naval vessels via common mission control system, linked over satellite communication. The same station can also monitor unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

Why has it got a Windscreen? why, for the same reason that the Toilet windows in Concorde were of frosted glass! Can't have people peeking in at Mach2 and 50,000 feet!!
