SAND (Surface Advanced Naval Drone) Research and Development Project was officially presented during the recent Versilia Yachting Rendez-Vous. 

The Project was developed  through the partnership of Meccano Engineering, Effebi and IDS Ingegneria dei Sistemi and co-financed by the Tuscany Region.

The aim of the research program is to build an advanced unmanned boat with outstanding sea-keeping capabilities and able to support up to ten different Mission System configurations.

After prototype construction, one year is planned to be dedicated to product
marketing with an estimated follow up of several units per year.
